The Suffolk County One-Stop Employment Center is hosting several virtual employment events to assist residents in their job searches.
The county Department of Labor also has launched a virtual job board, the Virtual Career & Talent Portal, to serve as a one-stop-shop for employers and jobseekers, bringing the programs and services available in the bricks and mortar One-Stop Employment Center online. The job board, at scnyforward.info, is available in English and Spanish.
Job seekers can access job listings, training opportunities, get help creating a résumé and research in-demand occupations. So far, 64 employers have registered for the site, officials said.
Preregistration is required for virtual events. A Zoom login and meeting code will be provided once registration is complete.
