Employment & Training
The famous industrialist and philanthropist Andrew Carnegie was fond of saying, "My heart is in the work". While that's always easy for a multi-millionaire to say, it's certainly true that having a job is better than not having one.
One of the City's goals is to seek out and provide employment opportunities for its citizens. Jersey City devotes a number of resources toward meeting that goal.
The Jersey City Employment and Training Program assists new employers who are moving into the City to meet any applicable compliance obligations and supports existing employers who need to hire, test and recruit new employees. It also provides industry current labor information to employers so as to ensure the move to Jersey City is the right one.
The Project Employment Opportunity Program publicizes employment opportunities available through tax abated projects in the City to Jersey City residents.
The Jersey City Division of Personnel administers hiring for City employment and can be reached at (201) 547-5217.
In addition to City employment assistance, the State of New Jersey, Department of Personnel administers the merit system employment provisions formerly known as "Civil Service".
