With the national unemployment rate continuing to remain stubbornly high, Senator David Carlucci (D-Rockland/Westchester) will be hosting a Jobs Workshop to provide residents the chance to brush up on new skills to maintain a competitive advantage in today's global economy.   This workshop will give Hudson Valley residents who are unemployed or underemployed the tools they need to find better job prospects and renew their place in the workforce. 


A panel of career experts and high-tech employment resource centers in Rockland County are scheduled to address attendees and discuss how to use the internet for job searches, professional interviewing skills, resume writing, and networking and social media in the digital age.


The job market is especially difficult for New York State residents who have been out of work for longer period of time.  According to the New York State Department of Labor,a total of 18,940 individuals were collecting unemployment insurance for more than 26 weeks up until December, 2012, with 2,144 in Rockland County alone.

All of these services are also available at Tomorrows Workplace in Spring Valley. And anyone on unemployment knows this because you have to attend an orientation session in order to keep your unemployment insurance.

Tomorrows Workplace offers workshops for interview skills as well as resume workshops. They also give you access to computers for job searches, email, faxing. They offer everything you need to get back to work.

Lol. They offer you everything you need except the most important thing: the actual availability of decent paying jobs within the state of NY. Instead of hosting a nonsense resume writing class, perhaps our state Senator should be working hard to lower taxes, fees, and other hurdles of doing business in NY so that employers have incentives to locate here or expand their business. If there are no jobs available, even the best written, nicest looking resume will not help the unemployed. As usual, another gimmick from our local politicians.

Another dog and pony show by Kid Carlucci. This guy has NEVER held a job in the private sector. And he us going to tell you how to get a job? Agree with Mike. . Reduce taxes so the private sector can create jobs.
