"We are pleased to see the unemployment rate decline again this month, but there are still many Vermonters who need a job, or a better job, so that they can participate in the gains of an
improving economy. The Vermont Department of Labor's services are open for all Vermonters, with particular focus on job placement assistance. Our staff in the regional Career Resource Centers can help connect the
job-seeker with Vermont employers who are recruiting for their vacancies. Depending upon a person's eligibility, we can provide funding for training. We also have specific funding for workers who are laid off or who
lost their job as a result of adverse foreign trade impacts. We have funding to work with 'at risk' youth, Vermont Veterans, low-income Vermonters and Reach Up participants. We have hiring incentives for employers
including OJT and WOTC funding. We regularly sponsor job fairs for employers. If you are looking for work, or hope to transition to a new job or career, visit a local VDOL Career Resource Office."
