Train & Work in STEM
If you have been long-term unemployed or underemployed (6 months or more) employers can receive salary reimbursements of up to 75% while providing occupational skills training on the job in key STEM fields: advanced manufacturing, engineering and information technology.
People with education or experience -- including recent college graduates -- in these fields are highly encouraged to apply. If you are a dislocated worker (see below) or long-term unemployed and have not worked in these fields before, contact staff about your transferable skills.

ABOUT DISLOCATED WORKERS:
Dislocated workers are certified as having been laid off or terminated or given notice of a lay-off or termination AND are eligible for or have exhausted unemployment insurance (UI), AND are unlikely to return to previous employment. Self-employed, displaced homemakers and military spouses may may also be certified, as well as some people who don't qualify for unemployment insurance benefits.
