* If my unemployment benefits have expired, or I was not eligible for benefits, can SLATE or a Career Center still help me? If so, how?
* What role does a career counselor play in my job search & what should I expect of them?
* If I have a counselor that I enjoy working with, can I schedule appointments to meet with them specifically?
* What is the status of WIA training funds?
