New Haven Works - Assistance to Find Employment!

About New Haven Works     

New Haven is home to more than 80,000 jobs, many of which are large employers in the so-called “eds and meds” industries – higher education, health care, and biotechnology – the only sectors in Connecticut’s economy that have experienced job growth every month since the 2009 recession began. It has long been documented that these industries produce considerable assets for their municipalities and are positioned to provide numerous, secure, and well-paying jobs. With a world-class research university, the fourth largest healthcare network in the U.S., a biotechnology sector experiencing a renaissance, and several large construction projects underway, New Haven is positioning itself to create jobs in these sectors and supporting industries.

At the same time, a quarter of our working-age population is out of the workforce, either because they are unemployed or working less than full time or well below their skill- and pay level. We have a responsibility to address the needs of these individuals, many of whom already are prepared to work.

In January 2012, the New Haven Board of Aldermen convened a working group to address unemployment and underemployment in the city, an issue that effects New Haven more than any other town in the county but that is very much a national challenge. The working group met over the course of nine months to understand the causes and possible solutions to chronic joblessness in New Haven; in doing so they met with leaders from workforce development programs in Seattle, Newark, and Bridgeport, and they asked what works and what does not works in their cities. The answers to their questions were consistent: to end joblessness, a city needs ongoing support and case management for un- and underemployed individuals, and local employers need to commit to considering qualified local candidates. New Haven Works was conceived as an organization that could coordinate and deliver these two principles.
Orientations last about 90 minutes and are held at 205 Whitney Avenue, first floor. Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis, so arrive early. Participants must be a resident of the City of New Haven, 18 years or older, and able to work legally in the United States.
Please bring the following to orientation:
      • An updated resume.
      • A government-issued ID (such as a driver’s license).
      • Social security card, birth certificate, or passport.
We look forward to meeting you!
