Register with MDES

Before MDES can help you do anything--whether you are looking for a new job or filing a claim to get your weekly unemployment benefits--you have to register with MDES.

If you are not already registered with MDES,  you may register using our Online Services

Register Online

It’s easy to follow the directions and there are so many job openings listed, that you’re sure to find one that works for you. If you do not have a computer or access to one, the public libraries in Mississippi have computers you may use to register with MDES and look for a job.  The WIN Job Centers  also have computers you may use. Our employment representatives are there to help if you need assistance.
