Employment & Training Response to COVID-19

Cayuga County Cares about this community! In these unprecedented times, we have suddenly been faced with many obstacles to navigate.  Social isolation and distancing, health care concerns, and political controversies are consuming many of us on a daily basis.  On top of that, we are also facing a workforce crisis!  Being out of work and unable to fully sustain our families is a struggle many of our community members are facing. Cayuga County Cares and wants to help! The Cayuga County Employment and Training Department and partner agencies offer assistance to job seekers and businesses in the community. The Cayuga Works Career Center is here to help you navigate through this workforce crisis together. We are working diligently to get the center up and running safely again, however, in the meantime we are available to continue to serve you remotely.  Now is the time to improve your resume, practice interviews, gain job leads, obtain information on training opportunities, or seek support and career counseling. All of these services and more are available to the community and free of charge.
