Support available to start health care career


Jobs in the health care field are among those in highest demand in the Twin Cities. Individuals wanting to begin or further their career in health care can receive support from LSS Financial Counseling’s Health Care Careers Program in St. Paul’s Frogtown neighborhood.
The Health Care Careers Program meets individuals where they are on their employment journey. The service offers three types of support that are customized for each person:
• Career Counseling: Employment counselors connect individuals to specialized training opportunities, job fairs, employment opportunities, employers, job search websites and networking sites.
• Access to Resources: Counselors discuss barriers to getting a job and provide resources to remove those barriers.
• Financial Coaching: Counselors review your finances, discuss your financial goals and work with you on an action plan to take better control of those finances. This can include budgeting, learning how to improve credit scores and managing debt.
“Securing employment in a fulfilling career with a stable income is a major component of an individual’s personal and financial wellness,” said Viva Yang, Senior Program and Communications Manager with LSS Financial Counseling. “We work with you to create a plan that fits with your personal goals and equip you with the tools and resources you need to secure a job in health care. We’re there for you to answer your questions and help you manage the challenges you face along the way.”
