EQUIPPING PEOPLE. GROWING BUSINESS. STRENGTHENING COMMUNITY.

The Workforce Investment Network (WIN) is a community resource that prepares job seekers for jobs and helps connect them with employment opportunities in Memphis, Shelby County, and Fayette County. We identify and pre-screen qualified talent for local businesses, and in some instances provide grants to employers to help defray the cost of training their workforce.  We provide job seekers with a variety of services, such as assessments, resume development, job search assistance, and when a job seeker is suitable and eligible we help fund the job skills training needed to find and keep a good job. Working together, we can make a difference-for our residents, for our businesses, for our community.
