WorkAC Initiative Helping Atlantic County Residents Find Jobs

May 3, 2017

WorkAC, a new initiative between the Atlantic Cape Community College Workforce Development Department, the Atlantic County Workforce Development Board and the Greater Atlantic City Chamber have partnered in helping Atlantic County residents find employment.

The WorkAC office, located at the college’s Worthington Atlantic City Campus, 1535 Bacharach Blvd., in Room W105 in the Caesars Entertainment Hospitality and Gaming Studies Wing, will be open until June 30. Walk-ins are welcome, and appointments are not necessary.

Job-seekers will team up with a WorkAC success coach, who will serve as a navigator and advocate to help people find meaningful work. The coach will connect participants to information, resources and the office’s employment specialist. All services are free.

“We are here to help because there are jobs,” said Sherwood L. Taylor, director, Workforce Development at Atlantic Cape. “The WorkAC program has people and resources to help you find work.”

The WorkAC office is open Monday – Thursday, 9 a.m. – noon and 12:30 – 3:30 p.m., with an additional 3:30 – 6:30 p.m. time slot on Thursdays only.
