INDIANAPOLIS (September 7, 2016) - The Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD) and its community partner, WorkOne Southwest Indiana, have activated the state’s Rapid Response team to assist employees affected by ITT Tech closing its facility in Newburgh.

Activities focus on connecting displaced employees with local employment opportunities as well as providing resume assistance, interview workshops and skills assessments.
