Considering a New Job or a Career Move?
Pay a Summertime Visit to Your Local CTWorks Office


For immediate release
June 20, 2007

WETHERSFIELD – Summer is usually the time when thoughts turn to vacations and time off from work.  

It can also be a great time to lay the foundation for a career move – whether you want to find a first-time job, advance your career, or explore new employment fields. 

Your local CTWorks Career Center is the perfect place to find the workforce assistance you need to accomplish these tasks. With 14 offices statewide, the CTWorks Centers – staffed by friendly and qualified Connecticut Department of Labor employees and their workforce partners – provide all the resources and tools needed to launch and conduct a comprehensive job search.

“Whether you’re an individual looking for a new job or a business seeking help with your recruitment needs, we’re ready to lend a helping hand and would love to hear from you,” explains State Labor Commissioner Patricia H. Mayfield. “At the CTWorks Centers, we offer professional employment services without the high price tag you often pay to an employment agency or career counselor.” 

Services job seekers will find at a CTWorks office include nationally Certified Professional Résumé Writers, telephones and faxes to help with job searches, computer software and printers, employment-related workshops and career specialists.

Workshops can help you sharpen your interviewing and computer skills or assist you in making the most out of a networking opportunity. You’ll also find a variety of online services, accessed through the Labor Department’s Web site, such as labor market data, the Job and Career Connection, training programs and employment-related services in the community.  

For the business community, Mayfield notes, services include recruitment assistance, regional and local job fairs, and programs designed to upgrade employee skills. Labor Department employees also provide OSHA guidance and consulting services, offer employer information seminars, and have available labor market data to help with business growth.

Labor Department staff can be found at CTWorks Centers located at the following addresses: 2 Lafayette Square, Bridgeport; 152 West Street, Danbury; 95 Westcott Road, Danielson; 620 Enfield Street, Enfield; 37 Marne Street, Hamden; 3580 Main Street, Hartford; 85 West Main Street, Meriden; 645 South Main Street Middletown; 260 Lafayette Street, New Britain; Shaw’s Cove Six in New London; 113 Salem Turnpike, Suite 200, Norwich; 486 Winsted Road, Torrington; 249 Thomaston Ave., Waterbury; and 1320 Main St. Tyler Square, Willimantic.
