New tool to help Iowans plan a career
by Report submitted · September 7th, 2017

Iowans looking for promising career opportunities or a career change can use Iowa's "Future Ready" resources to make the best possible choices.

Future Ready Iowa is an initiative to help Iowans get education and training beyond high school so that they have the qualifications for in-demand jobs that pay well. Because more careers are requiring advanced knowledge and technical skills, Future Ready Iowa is striving for 70 percent of Iowa's workforce to have education, training or recognized certification beyond high school by 2025.

The Future Ready Iowa website can help you explore careers, learn about available education and training, see what types of financial aid are offered and search available positions for the right job opportunity.

For even more focused help, contact the local IowaWORKS Center, where professionals provide one-on-one help choosing a career path, writing a resume and cover letter, practicing for job interviews, assessing your skills and searching for jobs. The local office is:

IowaWORKS Center - Cedar Rapids

Lindale Mall, 4444 1st Avenue NE, Suite #436, Cedar Rapids


As Iowa prepares to be Future Ready, sector partnerships already are playing a growing role by bringing together business, industry, workforce and education to ensure training prepares Iowans for specific jobs that need to be filled.
