Minimize Development & Maintenance


Web Presence​

Creating and maintaining a website can be overwhelming. When determining the content of your website, avoid duplicating information that can be found on Illinois workNet® including:

  • Interactive tool(s) and guides.
  • Articles that dive into the details and provide more guidance based on a customer's specific situation. Articles will continue to be added over time to keep information fresh.
  • Videos for those who prefer to or learn better by watching them.
  • Curated career and educational resources.

You can link to any of our resources and you can further minimize your website maintenance by copying and pasting our widgets into your site. 

Learn more about these options below.

Add customized, interactive tools that are maintained through Illinois workNet to your site. 

It is easy.
