Strategically Virtual

July 26, 2021

Outlines how the public workforce system can use technology and community partnerships to expand services, address job seeker mental and emotional well-being, and ensure that a broader range of the public is able to access supports.

The Strategically Virtual series builds off the lessons learned from the Suddenly Virtual series to explore how to provide guidance to the public workforce system on being more strategically virtual, particularly how that could be operationalized at the state and local levels. The Strategically Virtual series envisions how the public workforce system could engage community resources and partners to holistically address job seeker needs, addressing physical and psychological safety in addition to more traditional job search supports and skill development. Strategically Virtual has developed a framework for job seeker services and produces issue briefs, Medium blog posts, practical guides, and more.
