Gov. Kathy Hochul is promoting numerous free state resources that are available to help connect New Yorkers with vacant jobs as they transition back to the workforce or explore new career paths.

The New York State Department of Labor continues to proactively connect unemployed New Yorkers with jobs through recruitment, skill-matching, marketing, community outreach and other ongoing efforts as part of New York State’s economic recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The DOL offers free resources to assist New Yorkers with career exploration, including JobZone, resume assistance, interview insight and much more. Job seekers in every region of the state can also learn about virtual career fairs, workshops and classes by visiting DOL’s Career Calendar.

The Department has also partnered with other state agencies such as the Department of Transportation to host virtual recruitment events and highlight and recruit for opportunities within New York State government.
