Laid Off From Retail?

Move Out of Retail

Were you impacted by a retail store closure like Shopko, Toys"R"Us or Boston Store? We're hosting a transferable skills workshop and an interviewing event in partnership with the WorkSmart Network and Wisconsin Job Service to help workers affected by retail closures. Even if you've since secured employment, you can attend to learn how you can start a new career.

jobUP: How Your Retail Skills Transfer to Other Industries

Learn how your retail skills - like customer service, management and multitasking - transfer to other industries like healthcare and IT. You can either register to attend in-person or receive a link to the video recording.
