Capital Workforce Partners, through the American Job Centers (AJC), continues to serve clients virtually, by phone and in person “by appointment only”. In an effort to continue to address the community’s workforce needs, we have set up a “Job Seeker and Employer Help Line” designed to provide potential temporary employment options and support to individuals who may have been dislocated due to COVID-19. This may consist of referring individuals to job opportunities, to community partners and programs, as well as directly to AJC programs working through a virtual model.

Effective February 16, 2021, we will begin to see clients by appointment only at the American Job Centers. Please call 860-406-3374 press 3 to set up an appointment.

During this public health crisis, do you need help finding a job, changing careers, or getting the training you need to move ahead? Are you an employer needing to find immediate quality talent? There are training scholarships and job placement support available.
