Important Message Regarding Covid-19
The Career Center is providing career services to the public. The staff has been in the office since mid-July on a rotating basis and was fully staffed on October 5th. The Business Representatives remain remote but are providing services to employers and job seekers. They and staff from the Workforce Development Board are sending out job leads to thousands of job seekers a week in a project that began back in March and continues today.
The One-Stop Career Training Center is offering orientation sessions each Friday at 10 providing job seekers information about the center's services and information about training grants.
