We offer a number of ways for your business to partner with Rise. One way is to become a Community Evaluation Site; our Rise staff can bring an individual to learn more about his or her work skills through real-world job experiences.
Rise and the State of Minnesota offer paid work experiences or a vocational evaluation to eligible job-seekers looking to enter or re-enter the workforce. With this partnership, Rise provides your business with a short-term worker and a Rise staff to supervise to ensure quality work. There is no obligation to hire the person and Rise pays the worker minimum wage; you are not responsible for any payroll activity. If, however, you find that the person is a good fit for an open position and would like to consider them for employment, you are free to proceed!
