Full launch of new DirectConnectMKE jobs platform taking place TODAY
A virtual full launch webinar provided the venue for the launch earlier today of the revised DirectConnectMKE (DCMKE), as the city’s employment resource platform moves to its next phase in connecting residents with job and career opportunities.
Alderwoman Milele A. Coggs, who helped craft legislation to create the workforce development platform in 2017, offered welcoming remarks during the opening session of the full launch webinar this morning.
“DCMKE has been joined by Milwaukee organizations that support our mission, and the DCMKE team has been a staple during job and resource fair events, job fairs in the street in city neighborhoods, and also during drive-thru job fairs during the COVID-19 pandemic,” she said. “It is exciting to be now moving to the next phase of DCMKE, complete with a brand new look and feel that our team has been working on now for the past year.”
DCMKE users can easily access valuable information on job training, job supports, and job placement opportunities. Connect with @jthompson to gain access to a wide selection of career mentors who will connect you to invaluable opportunities for job training and job placement.

The new DCMKE is now a Digitized Workforce Pipeline as is illustrated in the infographic attached/below, providing smart job seeker access to employment service agencies, supportive service agencies and employers.
