HENRIETTA, NY.-  On January 17th, 2019, more than 1000 job seekers stopped into the Flynn Center @ Monroe Community College to speak with over 70 companieslooking to hiring motivated individuals who are seeking employment. The event ran from 10am to 2pm, with lines of people trying to check in for registration. The 11th Annual Career Conference offered workshops during the fair, one by Rosa-Smith Montanaro & another presented by John Logal. Both of the workshops met full room capacity, which is the first time it has ever happened at the Career Conference.  This was one of the most successful conferences yet.
RochesterWorks! has committed all of our general Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Adult and Dislocated Worker training grant funds for the current fiscal year, which ends June 30, 2019. We do have some Youth training funds, and we anticipate that we will receive some additional training funds for Dislocated Wokers. Otherwise, we will not be able to award new WIOA funds for training programs that start prior to July 1, 2019. If you are unsure, please speak with a staff member at one of our career centers.

On Tuesday October 23rd, the first Town Hall of Business was held to inform business leaders on the impact the opioid crisis is having on the workplace. This information is vital to have in today’s workplace as it is such a relevant issue for employers, employees and their loved ones. Having the proper knowledge, tools, and resources in place is essential. The organizers of the event are more than happy to come to your place of business to deliver this message and provide further training to you and your employees. Large trainings for all employees or smaller trainings with just your management and HR staff are available.  Resources and trainings for whatever your business needs can be sought.
