UNION COUNTY, NJ - As of Monday, June 1, job seekers in Union County can use the new “Union County Works” website at ucajc.org to find job openings, job training and education opportunities, help creating resumes, and more. It is the first county-based “virtual one-stop” employment service in New Jersey.

Union County Works is a project of Union County’s American Job Center. The launch of the new online platform makes the American Job Center the first local workforce area in the state of New Jersey to offer a virtual one stop to its residents.

It is designed to help all job seekers, including veterans and youth, connect with resources remotely while offices are closed to the public during the COVID-19 outbreak.
