Advancing the Job Prospects of Unemployed Oklahomans

Unemployment can happen to anyone. And sadly, the longer unemployment stretches on, the harder it can be for job seekers to gain work again.

The good news? Work Ready Oklahoma is here to provide a bridge, helping local employers find the right personnel—and unemployed individuals to rejoin the workforce and contribute their talents.

We help unemployed and underemployed Oklahomans grow and expand their skills and qualifications. Through a federal grant, we are able to provide free training and educational opportunities to help select unemployed and underemployed individuals become better professionally equipped—and more competitively positioned—for good jobs than ever before.

Am I Eligible?

If you are currently unemployed or underemployed in Oklahoma—particularly for 27 weeks or longer—we may be available to help. To qualify, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years old;
  • Have a high school diploma or GED; and
  • Have some post-secondary education or work experience

Other eligibility considerations apply. Discover if you qualify for free education, training, job placement, and other career services through our Ready to Work program.
