Wagner-Peyser Program

Once you've enrolled in MoJobs and used it to search for a job, the Wagner-Peyser program is the next step.  Wagner-Peyser is a federally-funded program providing labor exchange services to employers and job seekers statewide. The goal of labor exchange services is to help job seekers obtain meaningful employment opportunities and assist employers in obtaining skilled and productive employees.

Services for job seekers include:

  • job placement, 
  • resume preparation, 
  • testing, 
  • job-seeking skills workshops, 
  • computer-based job matching, 
  • and labor market information.

If you're interested in Wagner-Peyser services, please visit the Joplin or Monett Job Centers, or over the phone at (417)-629-3000 (Joplin) (417) 635-1207 (Monett).
