County Marks Opening of New Workforce Development Location


EATONTOWN, NJ – The Monmouth County Board of Chosen Freeholders joined with state and local officials for a ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the new location of Monmouth County’s Division of Workforce Development and American Job Center on Oct. 30. Freeholder Serena DiMaso, Esq. joins with Freeholder Director Lillian G. Burry, Freeholder Deputy Director John P. Curley, Senator Jennifer Beck and numerous officials for the grand opening of the Monmouth County Division of Workforce Development on Oct. 30 in Eatontown.


The American Job Center is now located at 17 Christopher Way in Eatontown.


“The American Job Center is a valuable resource for anyone in need of a job,” said Freeholder Serena DiMaso, Esq., liaison to the Division of Workforce Development. “Whether it’s information on job postings, retraining or simply to get help with a resume, these dedicated staff members are there to help Monmouth County residents find a job to support themselves and their families.” 


The Division of Workforce Development offers programs and services at two American Job Centers, in Neptune and Eatontown. They provide people of all skill and income levels help with finding a job - including retraining and advice on writing a resume.


Training is available for those who are unemployed and career counselors can help those who already have a job find a better job. On any given day you will find people using the Learning Link, a room with computers where they can do online training to brush up on their computer skills, reading, math skills or get other tutoring. They can even work toward their GED (General Equivalency Diploma).


The Division hosts job fairs annually, usually in the spring and fall, in an effort to connect employers with job seekers.


“The County’s Division of Workforce Development works to help people develop the skills they need to find gainful employment and then connect them with employers who have current openings,” said DiMaso. “This is beneficial for both Monmouth County residents who are looking for jobs as well as for area businesses that are seeking qualified, pre-screened job candidates.”
