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.

Manufacturing Day 2020 – Made in New Jersey
October 2 @ 7:30 am - 1:00 pm
National Manufacturing Day is an important way for the New Jersey Manufacturing Extension Program (NJMEP) to spread the word about the benefits that manufacturing provides to the Garden State.
As a supporter of Manufacturing Day, NJMEP is working to drive awareness of manufacturing, the career opportunities that are available, and the advanced technologies that are driving the industry.
This year’s celebration on Friday, Oct. 2, will be virtual, with NJMEP celebrating every New Jersey manufacturing business and essential employee.
Highlights include a Virtual Exhibit Hall focusing on the companies supporting the industry and the manufacturers that keep the world moving; breakout sessions ranging from Manufacturing Cyber Risks to exploring Workforce Strategies; and one-on-one strategy sessions allowing participants to talk with companies via video conference. The Virtual Exhibit all runs from 7:30 to 9:30 a.m., followed by the breakout sessions going to noon. The day ends with the one-on-one strategy sessions.
