  • Receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits.

The role of the Employment Security Department (ESD) is help WorkFirst participants find a job and stay employed. ESD’s part of the WorkFirst program is called Career Scope Job Search.

If you are referred from DSHS, ESD will assign you a career coach. Your career coach will meet with you once a week to:

  • Introduce you to the WorkFirst Career Scope Job Search program and how we can help you.
  • Assess your work skills and interests.
  • Help you create a resume.
  • Help you improve your interviewing and job searching skills.
  • Refer you to other helpful training and workshops.
  • Show you how to research careers and find jobs that interest you.
  • Refer you to jobs.
  • Help you progress in your career, even after your TANF benefits expire.
