Norwich, CT; June 2012 – The CTWorks East Career Centers has employment services and training funds for employees who were effected by the September 2010 lay off by Mohegan Sun Casino.
Time to take advantage of these no cost services is quickly running out.
The program, which ends in December 2012, is provided at no cost to any person who was involved in the Mohegan Sun lay off in September 2010, but also extends to people who were laid off after that initial group. Services include job search assistance, resume development and critique, pursuit of skill upgrades (including; classroom based, online, and On the Job Training), networking assistance, and even individualized referrals to community based support systems.
The Eastern Connecticut Workforce Investment Board (EWIB), headquartered in Franklin, CT, recognizes that massive layoffs can have a major impact on the local economy; even years after they’ve taken place. The EWIB received this National Emergency Grant to assist those laid off from Mohegan Sun from September 2010 to the present and through the efforts of outreaching to the public we have been successful at assisting customers achieve employment.
“We are in the last six months of the grant contract. We still have resources to assist anyone who might have been part of that original group.” states Nancy Gartley, the Workforce Advisor working with former Mohegan Sun employees. “With Connecticut’s unemployment rate dropping below 8%, I’d like to think that many of the affected were able to find work. If they haven’t, chances are their unemployment compensation will soon end. We are here to help.”
