KCC staff will be available for in-person assistance by appointment only.

Currently appointments can be scheduled for April 15-30. Beginning April 19, appointments for May 3 will become available, with additional appointment times opening each day thereafter.


The announcement was made Tuesday by Gov. Andy Beshear and Labor Cabinet Secretary Larry L. Roberts.

On March 31, Gov. Beshear spoke about the need for additional state funding to bolster career center staffing for the long term. The Labor Cabinet will be utilizing current staff in the career centers that normally provide career counseling services to begin offering in-person UI assistance.
