The Idaho Department of Labor will reopen remote locations in 40 Idaho cities to return to service levels not seen since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a press release from the department.

According to the release, walk-in hours and appointment times are available for employment services, including resume writing, applying for jobs, filing for unemployment insurance benefits, mock interviews, job training assistance, access to community resources and more.

Idaho businesses may also use the department’s remote service locations for support with recruiting employees, listing job openings, collecting applications and accessing additional workforce resources.

The department’s remote service locations and mobile offices share space with state and local government offices, business and community organizations throughout Idaho. Mobile office locations and service hours are listed at labor.idaho.gov/officedirectory.

One-Stop Department of Labor offices reopened for in-person services in July 2020. The 11 One-Stop local offices are located in Sandpoint, Post Falls, Lewiston, Orofino, Caldwell, Boise, Twin Falls, Burley, Pocatello, Idaho Falls and Salmon. They are open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday except holidays.
