NCWorks.gov provides employers no-fee job-posting services with candidate matching capabilities, Labor Market Information, and many other features. The On-the Job Training Programs for New Hires and Incumbent Workers provides employers up to a 75% wage reimbursement for training eligible individuals. Candidates are screened, assessed and referred for consideration or employers can reverse refer for consideration. The Incumbent Worker Development Program is a competitive state-wide retention solutions grant that provides employers up to a $40,000 lifetime max for incumbent worker training. Guidelines provide details. Find out more about the Incumbent Worker Development Program. Through the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program, workforce career center staff assist U.S. workers who have lost or may lose their jobs as a result of foreign trade. Affected workers have opportunities to obtain the skills, credentials, resources, and support necessary to become reemployed. Learn more on the US Department of Labor website. The Workforce Career Centers can organize and market an employer interview day and arrange interview times for screened candidates. Job Fairs are organized by local chambers, the community colleges, and other workforce partners to provide access to job seekers.
