One year later. SEMCA Michigan Works! has been with you every step of the way. Serving more than 143,000 residents.


In just a few days, we will mark ONE YEAR of serving our friends and neighbors virtually. Never could we have imagined that this type of service delivery would continue for an entire year. Even though our parking lots remain empty, we serve with the same care and respect we always have.

We are grateful for what we’ve been able to do and thankful for a dedicated team that continues to serve the most resilient citizens, our fellow Michiganders.

During the past 12 months the SEMCA Michigan Works! team has served 143,520 residents as they endured the economic impact of COVID-19. For many, SEMCA remains a lifeline as they continue to face unemployment insurance issues, need assistance finding a new job or training opportunity.

(In April 2020, the SEMCA Michigan Works! Board and management first presented this video as a tribute to the commitment and professional service of the entire SEMCA team to our customers.)

SEMCA Michigan Works! stands ready to assist job seekers with services to advance a career and businesses with finding talent and support for their training needs. For a full list of programs and services, or to connect with a SEMCA Michigan Works! American Job Center, call 800.285.WORKS.
