The Rush to Work Job Center has been dedicated in Rushville. The collaborative effort between the Rush County Economic & Community Development Corporation, Eastern Indiana Works and Ivy Tech Community College will offer training to link job seekers with employers.
The 6,600 square foot building has been remodeled from a retail building which is now divided to allow space for Eastern Indiana Works, the local WorkOne provider, and a multi-use space for training purposes. Career advisors are on-hand to help with job applications, skills testing, and education and training options. Rushville Mayor Mike Pavey says the job center is the accomplishment of many partnerships coming together to find a solution.
“We know that some Rush County citizens need enhanced skills to meet the demands of today’s changing work environment. Ivy Tech wants to train those workers and Eastern Indiana Works wants to put those folks to work. We know our local industries and businesses need those employees. This building is the ‘one-stop-shop’ where that is going to happen,” said Pavey.
The facility also features a classroom, computer lab and conference area.
