Here’s a quick Q&A with Ali:

Can you share some highlights from projects in the works right now?

We have so many great things going on, it’s hard to pick! In the past year, we’ve incorporated several new events, including the Discover Healthcare event series for high school students, job fairs, and the Workforce Solutions Series, which connects employers with local and regional workforce development agencies.

What’s your favorite part of working with candidates and employers?

My favorite part of working with candidates is helping them expand their job search, learning about the kinds of work they are interested in doing, and helping with resumes and cover letters. I’ve had the opportunity to meet so many new people and I’m passionate about helping people live, work, and thrive in northeast Minnesota and northwest Wisconsin.

We have such a wealth of variety in employers and employment opportunities in this area. I love problem-solving with employers and helping them find qualified candidates for their open positions. I also enjoy helping employers explore untapped pools of talent that are often overlooked, including retirees, students, people living and working with disabilities, justice-involved individuals, and people new to the area.

The best thing about NORTHFORCE is that it’s flexible and adaptable. Every day is different and we’re always looking for new challenges.

What do you appreciate the most about the Northland?

Lake Superior, friends and family, green space — all of the above! I love to hike, run, and get into the woods. My husband and I are water lovers — we fish, kayak, and swim. We’re also blessed to be near our family.
