SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – A building where you could once shop for food is now a place to shop for a job. The Missouri Career Center has opened its doors in the former Price Cutter store on E. Sunshine.
Ginger Bradford is one of many staff members whose job is to help others find a job.
“I am excited about it. I love it,” said Bradford, a workforce specialist at the Missouri Career Center.
Years ago, Bradford says, she was the one needing a job- and found help at the career center. Now she’s come full circle.
“I am able to help them and know exactly how they are feeling about things- and that anxiety of looking for a new job…so I am able to channel into my own past with that,” Bradford stated.
She’ll now be able to help more people than ever- part of the staff at the all new career center. The new location replaces the former facility on Glenstone Ave.
