The ongoing Coronarvirus (COV-19) pandemic has led to the cancellation, suspension and repurposing of programs and events in the Greater Raritan workforce system and beyond.
The monthly Jersey Job Club workshops and events usually conducted at the Somerville One Stop Career Center have been suspended.
Workshops presented in person by the Greater Raritan One Stop Career Training Center have moved to virtual platforms, as have introduction sessions on SkillUp Greater Raritan, a program of the Greater Raritan Workforce Development Board (GRWDB). New virtual programs also are being developed.
In addition, all GRWDB Board and Committee meetings are being conducted virtually.
Look on the calendar for more information on all programs and meetings.
CareOne Hiring Event with Bergen Community College
April 21 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
Bergen Community College is hosting a virtual CareOne Hiring Event from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 21.
Participants will learn about how they can become a CareOne Community Healthcare Worker through an in-house internship program where participants are hired first and then trained for their position and duties – this is an “Earn and Learn” program. Participating CareOne locations include CareOne at Somerset Valley.
During the event, CareOne recruiters will be available, and participants will learn about the possibilities of this career pathway program, as well as tuition reimbursement benefits.
This program is part of New Jersey HealthWorks Scaling Apprenticeship, sponsored by a $12 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment and Training Administration.
