Job Help

The process of finding and applying for a job can be overwhelming. It can be difficult to know where to start. One important thing to know, is that you do not have to do it alone. There are organizations around the state that offer resume help, dress help, child care, job training and more. On this page you can find a variety of organizations near you that can help.

 
MDwise promotes and participates in events around the state to help members understand their MDwise health plan and benefits. At these events, members of our outreach team can answer any questions you may have including questions about job help. To find MDwise events happening near you, visit our events calendar.
