I wanted to help when I heard the news of over 1700 Target employees were laid off. This is what I came up with.
Quote from Fox9: "And although there are only so many jobs to go around in the Twin Cities, one caring woman is doing her best to help out.
Sarah Edwards runs the popular 'I am Minneapolis' and 'I am St. Paul' events, websites, and Facebook pages – which are closely followed in the creative industry. She's using the popular sites to help former Target employees find jobs.
“I thought what if I just started using the I am Minneapolis and I am St. Paul platforms to share what these people do?” Edwards said. “For me, even if a couple people get positions out of it I'll feel successful with it.
The sites are already filled with bios and contact information for former Target employees such as Julia Sasseville and Paul Novak who are looking for jobs. "
