Since the start of the Coronavirus pandemic in March 2020, workforce system services have continued to evolve to meet the needs of employers and job seekers.
The Greater Raritan One-Stop Career Training Service Center at 27 Warren St. in Somerville is open for in-person, career-related services. Appointments are encouraged and customers who walk in will be accommodated as staffing levels permit. In-person service at the Training Center at 6 Gauntt Place in Flemington will begin the week of Aug. 9, with appointment-only services on Monday and Tuesday, and appointment and walk-in services available Wednesday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The return date for appointment-only services at the Greater-Raritan One-Stop / Employment Services Center at 75 Veterans Memorial Drive has not been set.
As they have been since the onset of the pandemic, staff will continue to assist customers over the phone, via email and through virtual appointments, and an orientation session for new customers is conducted on Fridays. Virtual career-webinars presented by the Training Center and weekly webinars on SkillUp Greater Raritan (a program of the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board) will continue for the immediate future.
