We Bridge the Gap Between Job Seekers and Employers
RochesterWorks! is a nonprofit dedicated to providing no-cost employment services to job seekers, youth, and businesses. The Business Services Team at RochesterWorks! is dedicated to connecting your business to the people and resources that you need to thrive in the Rochester economy.
Free Job Postings
Post your open positions for free. New openings are shared on Twitter, and a weekly Job Seeker newsletter reaches more than 4,000 local candidates. If you're new to RochesterWorks!, register your business with us. If you've worked with us before, send your job posting directly to email@example.com
On-the-Job Training grant
RochesterWorks! offers a grant to help you hire and train the right candidates to fill you open positions. Candidates go through your traditional screening process, and if you decide you’d like to hire someone, the grant will reimburse your company for a portion of their wages while they’re on-the-job learning new skills.
Work Experience Tryouts
Try out candidates to see if their skills and work habits are a fit for an open position. A candidate will work on-site at your location but will be employed by a staffing agency and have their wages 100% subsidized and paid for by RochesterWorks!
From the annual Career Conference and Job Fair (the largest in our region!) with more than 1,000 job seekers in attendance to partner events with the New York State Department of Labor and County of Monroe Workforce Development, and smaller, more targeted recruitment events - we can help you reach quality candidates.
Introduce yourself to Rochester! We can work together to create blog posts, videos, and social media content to get the word out about who you are and what you do.
"I highly recommend fellow employers to utilize RochesterWorks to assist with the sourcing of candidates. The services they offer to prepare and assist candidates to get back to work are practical and helpful. They are able to connect the right people with the right opportunities."

"I actually think RochesterWorks! is too much of a secret here in Rochester. Anybody that has had bad experiences dealing with grants needs to know that it’s not the nightmare that it used to be 10-15 years ago. One of the things that RochesterWorks! has certainly done over the years is coming out on-site to help us through and simplify the paperwork process so that we actually can take advantage of it! It’s one of the things that I talk to our clients about all the time. You’re missing great opportunities to leverage if you don’t take advantage of these opportunities."
