The East Brunswick Public Library will hold a ceremony to commemorate the launch of New Jersey Career Connections, a new job search and career navigation service now provided at local libraries and One-Stop Career Centers throughout the state, at 11 a.m. on Jan. 12 at the library, 2 Jean Walling Civic Center Dr., East Brunswick.
Led by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and provided in partnership with the New Jersey State Library, New Jersey Career Connections offers local residents at all stages in their careers access to effective job search and career navigation services.
Some of the services now provided by the library include job search guidance by trained library staff, assistance navigating the New Jersey Career Connections website and referrals to local One-Stop Career Centers for advanced assistance. Nineteen local libraries, including the State Library, have received grants from the New Jersey Department of Labor to provide New Jersey Career Connections services.
New Jersey Career Connections services are available in person at One-Stop Career Centers and participating library locations as well as at CareerConnections.nj.gov, offering New Jerseyans the flexibility to determine how best to explore their career options. A list of all partner locations is available on the New Jersey Career Connections website.
At the ribbon cutting ceremony, there will be several guest speakers, including New Jersey State Assemblywoman Nancy Pinkin, Middlesex County Office of Workforce Development Director Kevin Kurdzielfac, and Middlesex County Office of Workforce Development Deputy Director Diane Seavers.
