"The state's economy has shown great resiliency over the last few years considering all that Vermont has faced with the national recession, multiple weather-related disasters and layoffs from some large employers. Despite those facts, Vermont is growing private sector jobs and people are finding work. A goal for the department is to respond to Vermont employers' concerns about finding workers. The Department's outreach to employers is helping connect job seekers to the vacancies, but we also need to engage more candidates in job training, including ensuring that they are 'career-ready', which translates to demonstrating a sincere interest in learning and doing the job well, respectful interactions with co-workers and customers, and helping the employer grow the business. The Department works with job seekers who are starting, changing or expanding their career options. Contact your local VDOL Career Resource Center."
