Groundbreaking for New Career Center

The Wiregrass Rehabilitation Center has teamed up with Alabama’s Work Force Development to build a better, more visible career center.

The new career center will be located on an empty lot next to the rehabilitation center.

It will be used to serve employers and employees by providing job match services, facility training, and online resume building.

Most of these services can be done online through Work Force Development.

“We're trying to create a one-stop shop to make it more convenient for people, regardless of what services they need for job search,” said Director Tim Olford of Work Force Development.

Construction is expected to be completed within the next year.
