Focus Group and Strategy Session:
Help With Your Job Search
Improve the Workforce Centers
As the New Year looms and the fate of the 99ers remains uncertain in Washington, the NY State Department of Labor (DOL), and NYC Department of Small Business Services (SBS), are reaching out to NYC area 99ers and the long term unemployed. Coordinated directly through the office of Colleen Garner, the Commissioner of Labor for NY State, the DOL wants to hear from US about ways they can better assist 99ers, the long-term unemployed, skilled and professional workers in our job search.
Improvement of the Workforce Centers will be our main focus. Many of us have used the centers; they are the direct avenue for delivery of services. This is a rare opportunity to get the immediate help you may need and contribute, as a client, to changes the DOL may implement that focus more directly on our needs. Issues such as realistic skills assessment, emerging industries, specifics of training opportunities and access to these programs will be discussed, in addition to new ideas.
Meet with high level NYS DOL and SBS representatives; tell them your experiences, the good, the bad and the ugly! Bring your concerns and suggestions. Your questions will be answered. Share your ideas for improvement, learn about new services/updated programs and help develop programs that focus on 99ers, skilled and professional workers.
