MoJobs Website Update

OWD launches live chat feature on MoJobs website to assist job seekers and employers

Job seekers and employers now have a new online way to connect with and receive assistance from Missouri Job Center staff.

The Missouri Department of Higher Education & Workforce Development’s Office of Workforce Development launched a live chat feature last week on the MoJobs portal. MoJobs, accessible from the jobs.mo.gov website, is an online tool that matches job seekers with employers. 

The live chat feature includes user-friendly functions that are meant to help job seekers, employers, and other guests of the MoJobs site. FAQ's are built into the chat to walk employers and job seekers through creating a MoJobs account, as well as give assistance in resetting a password and other simple tasks.

Job seekers can use the chat to learn how to search for jobs, as well as receive help with their unemployment claims and account issues. Employers can learn how to set up a virtual recruiter to find their ideal job candidates.

If the FAQ's do not answer the customer's questions, the tool prompts a live chat option available from 7 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Customers can use this feature to be contacted directly by a job center staff member by phone or email.

“The new chat feature will help our job centers to continually improve and diversify the customer experience,” said Mardy Leathers, Director of Workforce Development. “We are excited to add another tool to assist more Missourians as they work to further their careers.”

Job Centers are open for walk-in appointments in addition to virtual options from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Find all Missouri Job Centers at https://jobs.mo.gov/career-centers.

Financial Assistance- Spire

ST. LOUIS (Dec. 8, 2020) — Spire is offering a new financial assistance option of up to $500 for active, Missouri small businesses struggling due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Spire will begin accepting applications for the new Small Business Pandemic Relief Program the week of Dec. 14. 

The assistance is crucial as a recent study conducted by Spire of small business customers found 98% have been impacted financially by coronavirus. Many of these small businesses are restaurants working through public health precautions and social distancing practices related to the pandemic.

“Small businesses are an important part of our community, making up almost half of Missouri’s private sector jobs and playing a significant role in the state’s economy,” said Scott Carter, president of Spire Missouri. “We want to do our part to help.”

To be eligible for the program, a business must be an active, Missouri customer in the small general services rate class, be a locally owned business or franchise, and complete an online application. If accepted into the program, small businesses can receive $100 per month for up to five months. The program runs through Sept. 30, 2021, or until funds are exhausted.

“Young’s Restaurant & Catering Company, Inc. has been around since 1954,” said Grant Young, owner of the Valley Park, Missouri establishment. “Even as a longstanding family-owned business, we have felt the economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic. Carryout is only 40% of our normal business. We’ve been able to keep everyone employed and our doors open because of support from loyal customers who purchase gift cards and patronize us regularly. As we approach another rough patch, I appreciate Spire stepping up and offering assistance. Every bit helps right now.”

Approved Dec. 2 by the Missouri Public Service Commission, the Small Business Pandemic Relief Program is part of the company’s comprehensive approach to provide relief for customers who are experiencing hardship due to the coronavirus pandemic. In November, the natural gas provider began offering up to $400 in assistance for Missouri residential customers who have been furloughed or experienced job or income loss and have an outstanding balance on their Spire account. Additionally, Spire previously launched one-time credit assistance programs for both Missouri residential and small business customers.

“From the beginning of the pandemic, we’ve been committed to ensuring our community maintains access to affordable, reliable, clean natural gas,” said Carter. “We encourage customers who are struggling to call us. We are here to help.”
