Assemblyman Al Stirpe (D-Cicero) announced that he sponsored and helped pass legislation that requires the New York State Department of Labor (DOL) to implement a public awareness campaign to promote the New York State Job Bank (A.8458-A).
“As chair of the Assembly Small Business Committee, I’m focused on making it easier for workers to find job opportunities that align with their interests and skills so we can create a thriving workforce,” Stirpe said. “In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, helping local businesses recruit and retain workers is vital to our state’s recovery. This bill will help raise awareness of the NYS Job Bank and further expand access to employment. I want to thank Senator Anna Kaplan for carrying this bill in the Senate.”
The New York State Job Bank is an online resource that provides New Yorkers with tools and resources to find employment. Job seekers can post their résumé, access the State Career Center and connect with agents to assist with their job search, as well as take advantage of various resources ranging from job fairs to unemployment assistance.
New Yorkers can access the NYS Job Bank at newyork.usnlx.com to discover employment opportunities in their region and across the state and utilize numerous resources to help in their search.
