IGI Searches for Jobs in Kansas

Posted on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012 in KTWU Productions.

What areas of Kansas are hardest hit with unemployment? What is the state of Kansas doing to recruit, maintain and strengthen the workforce? What resources are available to help you find a job? KTWU’s I’VE GOT ISSUES launches its second season with a program focusing on “Jobs in Kansas”. This new program will air on Sunday, February 26, 2012 at 7 p.m. on KTWU-HD, Digital Channel 11.1.

In this economy, people who have been a part of a workforce for many years, find themselves jobless; and college graduates find that their “dream job”, just might really be a dream since they are still unemployed several months after graduation. What are the secrets in choosing what you may want to do for a living and what professions may actually support your needs and desires?

Program guests include Caleb Asher, Deputy Secretary of Workforce Services for the Kansas Department of Commerce, and Secretary of Labor, Karin Brownlee. The program includes a segment on the JAMS program (Jobs in the Arts Make Sense), which is offered through the Van Go organization in Lawrence represented by Assistant Executive Director, Kristen Malloy. And viewers will see a “commentary” by Cathy Hamilton, who writes a column for the Lawrence Journal-World called Boomer Girl Diary. Janet Thompson Jackson is host for this IGI episode.
