Potential career changers and job hunters can get insight into trends and training opportunities from a panel of experts May 17 at the Westbury Memorial Public Library.
What to expect in this new job hunting environment will be one topic discussed by officials from the U.S. Labor Department and Hempstead Works, a network of groups organized by Hempstead Town to help employers and job hunters find each other.
Also, speakers from Adelphi University, Hofstra University and Nassau Community College will describe job training programs and certificate programs at their institutions.
The free event is the third business and job-related panel set up this year by Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-Mineola).
“Despite optimistic economic trends, many Long Islanders are still struggling to find well-paying jobs and make ends meet,” McCarthy said. "There are a lot of resources available locally to help people improve their situations, and it's a priority for me to bring that information to my constituents.”
It starts at 9 a.m in the library, 445 Jefferson St. An RSVP is encouraged by calling McCarthy's district office, 516-739-3008, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
