Career Connections

Career Connections, Labor and Workforce Development, and New Jersey State Library logos

Many public libraries throughout the state are now participating in a new job search and career navigation initiative called New Jersey Career Connections. Led by the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, New Jersey Career Connections is designed to ensure that all New Jerseyans have the tools and resources they need to have successful careers.

The New Jersey State Library is tasked with assisting with the ongoing implementation of the initiative at participating public libraries. The libraries listed below provide uniform career guidance and job search assistance services to local residents. Such assistance includes:

  • Staff available to assist jobseekers
  • Access to the New Jersey Career Connections website and staff trained as website navigators
  • Referrals to One-Stop Career Centers for more intensive reemployment services
  • Learning opportunities for jobseekers

Some library locations offer additional services and support, including bilingual staff members, computer classes, and interviewing assistance. For more information and details about what services are available at these libraries, please refer to the contact information for each library listed below.
