New job portal will connect employers, job seekers

Monroe County has created a job portal to connect essential businesses that are looking to hire during the coronavirus crisis with healthy individuals who are looking for work.

The hope is that a single employment platform will streamline the hiring process and is done in cooperation with the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and Greater Rochester Enterprise.

The county is encouraging job seekers and employers to use the RochesterWorks system, which may be accessed at www.monroecounty.gov/works.

“During a time when we’re asking the vast majority of our residents to stay home and stop the spread of the virus, certain essential businesses must ramp up their operations to meet the needs of our community,” County Executive Adam Bello said in a news release.

“This centralized resource through RochesterWorks will serve to connect those businesses with our healthy workforce. Just as we centralize emergency response efforts in our county, I am asking we do the same regarding our labor supply and demand during this emergency.”

Residents with limited internet access are encouraged to call RochesterWorks at (585) 258-3500.
