Throughout the month of November, Finger Lakes Works is reminding the public about the vast array of job search services available for Veterans. These services include Skill Assessments, Job Search Assistance, Resume Preparation and training grants.
In addition to these services Finger Lakes Works Career Centers offer Priority of Service to veterans and their eligible spouses. What does this mean? If you served in the military, you will be served first by the next available staff member and given first priority for job referrals and training for which you are eligible and qualified.

As workers try to navigate the new requirements the COVID-10 pandemic has placed on communities, limited child-care options and changing school closures present a parallel crisis.
Working parents and their employers now find themselves in an ever-changing work and care landscape that can be increasingly tricky to navigate. Employers who are urgently addressing the care needs of their employees during this emergency, especially of those in lower income settings, can achieve business sustainability, productivity, and profitability in the long run.
The Finger Lakes Workforce Investment Board recently presented an expert panel of local child care and human services providers to discuss resources available to employers and employees.
Making up the panel was Julie Champion, Executive Director of Child & Family Resources, Inc. Renee Scholz, Family & Employer Services Director with The Child Care Council Inc. and Kay Jennings with Ontario County Department of Social Services.
Presentation included information about child care referrals and scholarship programs, concrete supports for families (i.e. car seats, diapers, formula, books, safety items etc.) and much more.
