Helping People Get Back to Work
On October 17, 2014, a Fall Job Fair was held for about 40 participants at The Open Hearth, a male transition facility located on Charter Oak Ave. in Hartford. More than 15 area businesses and community organizations participated in the event. The fair identified open positions, allowed interested participants to complete applications, and conducted interviews. Facility Coordinators Maureen Hearn and Stephen Haynes were also on hand to assist American Job Center / CTWorks staff: Myrna Fienman, Alex Merced and Len Tarantino screen applicants and inform businesses of financial incentives and tax credits available for hiring these individuals. The Career Center and Jobs Funnel services are available to provide assistance beyond the event itself.
The American Job Center / CTWorks Career Centers in North Central Connecticut are operated in partnership with Capital Workforce Partners, the Connecticut Department of Labor and KRA Corporation. Locations here.
