FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of County Commissioners would like to remind residents about the career services available to workers through the Monmouth County Division of Workforce Development.
“With extended pandemic-related unemployment benefits set to expire on Sept. 4, thousands of businesses throughout New Jersey need workers. The Monmouth County workforce system is ready to help with a range of both in-person and virtual career services,” said Commissioner Director Thomas A. Arnone. “The free services include assistance with job search, resume and interview skills, career counseling, webinars, and information on training grants for unemployed individuals. All Monmouth County residents are also encouraged to register with SkillUp Monmouth, a free online portal with more than 6,000 courses focusing on business, IT and health topics.”
Employment counselors help with career services
“The American Rescue Plan Act extended unemployment benefits end on Sept. 4, as does the weekly $300 supplemental benefits, impacting some 200,000 New Jerseyans. As the deadline approaches, Monmouth County Workforce Development wants all community members to know about the immediate availability of these career services,” said Commissioner Deputy Director Susan M. Kiley. “As liaison to Human Services which includes the Division of Workforce Development, I am proud of our Employment Counselors who work tirelessly to help connect job seekers to the thousands of open positions around the region.”
