Share

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone announced that the Suffolk County One-Stop Employment Center will host a range of virtual employment events this month to assist residents in their job searches. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, many critical services that residents rely on have been altered, but understanding the employment challenges residents are currently facing, Suffolk County has transitioned its job fairs, hiring events, and career exploration events to a virtual format.

“Hundreds of thousands of Long Islander have lost their jobs and need assistance now more than ever before,” said County Executive Bellone. “Through our virtual job board and hiring events, we are able to connect residents with meaningful employment to help them get back on their feet. I encourage everyone looking for assistance to visit the website and access our Labor Department services from the safety of their own home.”

To assist both residents and businesses in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Suffolk County Department of Labor Licensing, and Consumer affairs launched a Virtual Career & Talent Portal. The internet based job board serves as a one-stop-shop for employers and jobseekers, bringing all the programs and services available in the bricks and mortar One-Stop Employment Center online. This job board is also available in Spanish for those seeking job resources and who are Spanish speaking.

Job seekers are able to access online offerings such as job listings, education and training opportunities, create a résumé tutorials, career building assistance, research in-demand occupations, be matched with employers and much more. To date, more than 1,000 individuals have register, 64 employers have registered and 142 resumes have been created.
