County Executive Bellone Announces August Job Opportunities

Suffolk County Partners with Local Businesses and Organizations to Host Series of Career Exploration Events in August

Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone today announced that the Suffolk County Department of Labor, Licensing and Consumer Affairs will host a series of upcoming career exploration events. Job-seekers and residents looking for a change in career or new employment opportunities are encouraged to attend.


“As Suffolk County continues its post-COVID economic recovery, we are on track to host the largest total number of job fairs and career exploration events in nearly 10 years,” said Suffolk County Executive Steve Bellone. “At the half way point, we are also on track to have served the largest total number of job fair participants over the same time period – and with a diverse array of companies, representing in-demand hiring sectors there is no better time than now to attend a Suffolk County job fair.” 


Rosalie Drago, SCDOLLCA Commissioner said: "There are over 17,000 job openings in Suffolk County currently posted online. Employers regularly interview for these positions at Suffolk County job fairs and many hire on the spot. There are opportunities for people with high school diplomas, certificates, and degrees. Regardless of your experience or background there is a good paying job waiting for you in Suffolk County. To get started today call 3-1-1 where a Suffolk County Job Counselor is available to help you identify and explore these jobs, update your resume, or even do some interview prep."


Through the SCDOL’s One-Stop Employment Center, which functions as a full-service human resources facility that brings together both employers and job seekers, residents are provided with a streamlined approach to job search. The center supplies job seekers with all the tools necessary for a self-directed or staff-assisted job search, and provides employers with facilities and workforce support.
