The Town of Hempstead Department of Occupational Resources operates the HempsteadWorks Career Center. The Center provides assistance to jobseekers and to businesses. Jobseekers are provided with career counseling, information and referrals. Jobseekers may also participate in a variety of career development workshops. In addition to adults and displaced workers, HempsteadWorks also provides services to economically disadvantaged youth, veterans, individuals with disabilities, older workers, and others. The Center's Resource Room includes internet access, a computerized job bank, a Career Library and more.
HempsteadWorks helps businesses to recruit qualified workers by providing referrals and by arranging for on-site interviews within the Career Center. In addition, depending upon employer eligibility and availability of funds, HempsteadWorks helps businesses to apply for tax incentives related to hiring new workers and also to access reimbursement of training costs through On-The-Job Training programs.
