Whether it’s helping adults get reemployed or change careers, or helping youth locate summer jobs, the One-Stop is the place to go.
The One-Stop is a local employment portal dedicated to connecting Westchester and Putnam businesses to job seekers. The network of Workforce New York One-Stop Career Centers has helped thousands of people get job training, learn new skills and find employment free of charge. It’s a place to find information and register for workshops, trainings, orientations and more.
In an effort to celebrate its successes, recognize its benefactors and beneficiaries, and promote its services, the White Plains Workforce Investment Board has designated May as One-Stop Month for the third year.
It starts off with a kick-off breakfast on May 1st with keynote speaker Laura S. L. Herman, Managing Director, FSG. Additional activities throughout the month include a series of career-related workshops offered at various libraries throughout Westchester in cooperation with the Westchester Library System (WLS). These programs are targeted to a wide variety of jobseekers, career changers and business professionals and include: “Second-Act Careers for Semi-Retirement”, “Careers in Healthcare”, “Get LinkedIn to Your Job Search”, “Personal Branding”, “Hire Me! Keys to a Great Job Interview” and “Top Strategies for Kicking Off a Job Search”.
Whether you’re looking for a job or need an upgrade in training, get in touch with the One-Stop and come to one of the free workshops at a library near you! Dates and times can be found on our website.
