Share

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone today announced that the Suffolk County One-Stop Employment Center will host five virtual employment events, at the end of this month and beginning of next, 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.

“The fallout from the COVID-19 crisis has impacted us all, especially those who lost their jobs and their livelihoods,” said County Executive Bellone. “The Suffolk County One-Stop Employment Center is actively working to help our residents get back on their feet, and these Virtual Hiring Events are an excellent resource that can be accessed from the safety and security of your home. I encourage anyone looking for assistance to reach out to the employment center today.”

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.
