Jeff's New Purpose

  Jeff knew he would face some tough challenges in his job search. Last October, he was unexpectedly laid off after eight years as a warehouse laborer. Before that, he worked in construction.
   “Physically, I knew I couldn’t do that kind of work anymore,” said Jeff, who is in his late 50s.
   Today, Jeff is working as a human services representative with Hennepin County, and he has a whole new sense of purpose.

You Are A Hero!

You are a Hero! Dear Daily Work Donors: My name is Koua Fong Lee. I am a Metro State University social work student interning at Daily Work.

This impressed me and made me want to write this letter to thank everyone who …

Issac Is No Longer Delayed

Issac Is No Longer Delayed Isaac is a cheerful, soft-spoken man of about 50. He wears dark glasses, both due to light sensitivity and blindness in one eye.

After nearly two days of travel to get from Ethiopia to Minneapolis, his plane couldn’t land because Air Force One had taken over MSP International Airport.

The Changing Face of Networking

The Changing Face of Networking Finding work is not quite what it used to be. The 21st century is witness to a profound transformation in the way Americans connect with potential employers and colleagues. Last month, software juggernaut Microsoft announced publicly its intentions to acquire the social network LinkedIn for $26.2 billion U.S.D. Though this substantial corporate acquisition is just the latest in a string of Microsoft purchases, (with dozens of smaller tech firms joining the Microsoft fold since 2010) it reflects the changing means by which Americans find employment. LinkedIn, founded in 2008, describes itself as “the world’s largest …
