Introduction to Services

Workforce1 is a service that prepares and connects qualified candidates to job opportunities in New York City.  We make strong matches, both for candidates and employers, by using a unique combination of recruitment expertise, industry knowledge, and skill-building workshops to strengthen candidates' employment prospects.  Our approach gets results.  In 2011, we helped 36,000 New Yorkers find employment throughout the City, proving our commitment to your success.
Services
Our services are delivered through a network of Workforce1 Career Centers located throughout the City's five boroughs and are available to New Yorkers age 18 and older.  We offer onsite job screenings and Recruitment Events.  Each center also has a resource room equipped with telephones, fax machine, and a copier to support you in your independent job search.

If you need resume, interview, or general career advice to prepare you for your job search, then our onsite Land the Job workshops and Career Advisement services may be a great fit!
