Good news for job seekers: the employment agency is reopening

0

CareerSource Palm Beach County, the state-approved program that helps businesses find workers and job seekers find work, will reopen its West Palm Beach center with limited services and hours on Monday.

The central career center at 3400 Belvedere Road in West Palm Beach will be open from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. weekdays. Belle Glade and Delray Beach Career Centers remain closed until further notice. The organization will also continue to provide virtual online, email and telephone services to serve customers.

Clients are required to wear masks or face coverings while on site, undergo non-contact temperature monitoring and answer screening questions before entering the center, sanitize their hands at the entrance to the center and maintain appropriate social distancing at all times. No children or non-service visitors will be allowed for health and safety reasons.

Services for job seekers include registration and job search assistance. Access to computers, printers, telephones and fax machines will be available on a limited basis for those without access to a computer or those with limited computer skills.

“We are closely following guidance and recommendations from government and health officials to ensure appropriate steps are taken to protect our customers and staff,” said Julia Dattolo, interim president and CEO of CareerSource Palm Beach County, the state-licensed nonprofit organization to lead workforce development in the county. “We are also very committed to using technology to serve our customers in the form of email, online and telephone communications, websites and social media channels.”

A one hour time limit for these services will be applied due to capacity restrictions. Clients with access to computers are encouraged to use them instead of coming to the center and calling or emailing if they need help.

Companies looking for workers can contact CareerSource at www.careersourcepbc.com or call 561.340.1060 and select option 3. The service is free.

Individuals seeking services through the Social Welfare Transition Program (TANF), SNAP E&T, WIOA, Disability Services and Young Adult Program should do so by appointment only. Those already participating in these programs can continue to call or email their designated case manager instead of coming to the center. Appointments for these programs can be made by contacting:

  • TANF/Social Transition Program: Email
  • SNAP E&T (food stamps): Email
  • WIOA: email
  • Services for Persons with Disabilities: Email
  • Young Adult Program: Email
