Kentucky broadens scope of unemployment offices

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear has unveiled a new name for the state's 75 unemployment offices.

They've now officially been dubbed Kentucky Career Centers.

Beshear said the new name reflects a new focus on services for both job seekers and job providers.

The re-branding of the unemployment office to the Kentucky Career Center is part of a larger strategy to modernize the workforce development system. Some four years ago, Beshear had directed the Kentucky Workforce Investment Board to develop a way to make the system more globally competitive.

The launch of Kentucky Career Centers comes after three years of planning. The centers will offer a variety of new services, including career coaching, job fairs and resume writing.
