Union County - The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders is pleased to announce 100 new full-time ‘work at home’ customer service and tech support jobs available for county residents through the Workforce Innovation Business Center.
 
The job fair and information sessions will be held at the Union County Workforce Innovation Business Center, at The Mills at Jersey Gardens, 651 Kapkowski Road in Elizabeth on Tuesday, March 1 starting at 10:00 a.m. Pre-registration is required online at ucnj.org/wdb/100-job-positions-available/.

“The Workforce Innovation Business Center continues to be an economic engine for Union County, helping to match high quality local employers with qualified job seekers,” said Freeholder Chairman Bruce H.

Candidates interested in the “work at home” customer service and tech support opportunity must bring an electronic copy of their resume, and have at least one of the following qualifications: 60 college credits, technology certificate, and/or two years of military service. Veterans will be given hiring preference.

“The Freeholder Board is proud to offer another round of job recruitment for Union County residents in back to back months. We are aware that many residents face different living situations - some individuals can’t leave their home as easily as others due to a disability, while some are taking care of loved ones, and others face different circumstances for whom this could be a perfect job opportunity,” said Freeholder Vice Chairman Sergio Granados, who is in his third year as the Freeholder liaison to the Union County Workforce Advisory Board. “The Freeholder Board is proud to be able to present job opportunities for different segments of our residents and their family lifestyles to meet some of the workforce challenges they face.”

The Workforce Innovation Business Center was established by the Freeholder Board with Union County College through a $2.4 million investment in 2014, leveraging the employment services and education experience of both partners.

The WIB Center has offered more than 1,200 job opportunities in little over a year for Union County residents. This year, as Liaison, Freeholder Vice Chairman Granados has requested the WIB Center to prioritize the hiring of Veterans in support of Chairman Bergen’s 2016 “UC HERO” initiative, which encourages local employers to offer hiring preferences to military veterans.

 

Previous Workforce Innovation Center hiring rounds have matched Union County job seekers with top employers including Whole Foods, Doctor Martens and AirServ, among others.

 

For more details about the new round of hiring and other information about the WIB center visit online at ucnj.org, call 908-355-4444 or email Isaias Rivera, isaias.rivera@ucc.edu.
