Finger Lakes Hires: Have You Heard? Learn the ultimate goal of networking during this NYS Department of Labor workshop
Networking is contacting people who can either give you information about potential job openings or introduce you to others who have this information. The ultimate goal of networking is to meet the person who has the authority to hire you for the job you want. NYS Department of Labor’s August 23rd workshop will share some best practices for networking in today’s workforce.
Is the cost of childcare impacting your decision to start that new job or career? On average, families spend at least 10% of their income on childcare. NY is expanding eligibility to make childcare assistance available to more families to help pay for the cost of childcare. If you are working, looking for a new job, or attending an education or training program you may be eligible for childcare assistance. Even if you have applied in the past and found ineligible, you may be eligible now due to the expansion of eligibility guidelines. Join the Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) on August 19th for an interactive session to learn more about the CCAP.
