The State of Minnesota aspires to be a leader in employing individuals with disabilities. For some individuals with disabilities, traditional interviewing, assessment, selection, and testing methods may not accurately measure their skills and abilities to perform the required job responsibilities. Connect 700 provides another path to a state job for people with certain disabilities.
Once you apply for a position, you then have to contact the individual listed in the job announcement (prior to the position closing) and let them know you have a proof of eligibility certificate for Connect 700 and you are interested in the position.
If you meet minimum qualifications you will meet with the hiring manager to discuss job requirements and your skills.
If selected, you will be given an on-the-job trial work experience of up to 700 hours to demonstrate you can perform the job satisfactorily.
