About Us

RMCEP helps people find jobs or get the training they need to find the job they want.  If they are undecided, we have career exploration and planning activities. RMCEP is a private non-profit CareerForce partner that is located in eight CareerForce offices. Each has information on job openings. There are a variety of workshops on job search techniques, resume writing and interviewing. Each CareerForce offices has computers with Internet access, phones, printers, copiers and fax machines. Customers may use them to look for job openings, write their resumes, and get information on training and education available.

We can also help employers by posting their job openings and hosting job fairs where employers can access large numbers of job seekers at once. Staff can provide information and answer questions about the labor market and employment law. We have office space that employers can use to conduct interviews. RMCEP can help cut the cost of training a new employee through on-the-job training. RMCEP helps train new and existing staff with state and local funds. Through the use of On-the-Job Training contracts we can cover up to 50% of new staff wages. Using our Incumbent Worker Training grants, RMCEP provides funds to train current employees at a cost savings to employers of up to 90% of the cost of training.

These services are available at no charge. Our offices are easily identified by both our name and logo, look for the Rural Minnesota CEP name and image of the state of MN, along with the blue and green CareerForce sign. We have offices in Moorhead, Alexandria, Fergus Falls, Detroit Lakes, Bemidji, Brainerd, Wadena and Little Falls. We are listed in the phone book under Rural Minnesota Concentrated Employment Program (RMCEP).
