FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NCAWDB Promotes Virtual Employment Services Statewide
Raleigh, April 6, 2020 – The North Carolina Association of Workforce Development Boards (NCAWDB) is promoting virtual employment services to residents and employers statewide through the NCWorks Career Centers. North Carolina’s 23 local workforce boards will be able to help individuals experiencing job loss due to coronavirus or those looking for education and training resources. Businesses can connect with work-ready talent to meet their temporary or long-term needs. An in-person visit to a career center is not needed.
“This is the new reality; social distancing is the order of the day, but we know that there are so many individuals and employers affected by recent layoffs that need assistance now. NCWorks Career Centers have mobilized resources to provide virtual services to job seekers and businesses,” said Jeff Frederick, President of the NCAWDB.
With the NCWorks Career Center facilities being closed to the public, virtual services via telephone or internet are available to assist customers with their workforce development needs.
