Manpower offering tuition for workers needing GEDS

The Fairfield Public Library is hosting a new Manpower Group program starting Wednesday.

Manpower Group has a new program: Anyone working with them for a week or more can enroll in University of Phoenix and Manpower will cover up to $6,000 tuition a year.

Some companies require individuals to have their GED or high school diploma to qualify for fulltime employment. This program is designed to support a new hire in finishing his or her GED, thereby qualifying to work full time.

Manpower recruiter Jeny Herrera is able to help individuals find long-term employment, starting with a job and building to a career. Interviews will be conducted in a library study room on alternate Wednesdays from 1-3 p.m. starting this week. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

For appointments and information about the program, call Herrera at 641-682-0045.
