A one-stop career center offering job/career
services to job seekers and
Cape and Islands.
Career Opportunities is an activity of the Cape & Islands Workforce Investment Board and a collaborative of three agencies: the Job Training & Employment
Corporation (JTEC), Division of Career Services (DCS) and Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA). It is funded in part by the Department of Labor, Department of Education, Department of Transitional Assistance and Barnstable County.
Career Opportunities serves youth ages 14 - 21, adults and those 55 and over who are seeking employment. Most of the services provided are prepaid by our tax dollars. As a result, it costs job seekers and employers nothing to take advantage of these services. To benefit from these services, all a job seeker or employer needs do is become a member of Career Opportunities. Membership is FREE.
Among the services offered at no charge to job seekers is access to the Resource Room. The Resource Room provides job seekers an opportunity to conduct a job search via the Internet, prepare cover letters and resumes using a self-paced software program; copy resumes using a copy machine; send a resume via FAX or set up a job interview by telephone. In addition, job seekers can attend a variety of job search workshops to assist them in their effort to find employment. These services are available at NO CHARGE to the job seeker!
Career Opportunities can save employers time and advertising dollars used in their efforts to find qualified employees because there is no charge to employers who place their job orders with Career Opportunities. Nor is there a charge for the employer seeking labor market information or wishing to hold a customized recruitment event at Career Opportunities. These services and more are available to employers at NO CHARGE.
Although most services are available at no charge there is a fee for the more intensive services. The intensive services are customized services provided to job seekers on a one on one basis or specialized human resources services provided to employers. In the case of the job seekers, fees may be paid by individuals, employers, unions, or, for eligible individuals, by state, federal or philanthropic sources. Eligible Veterans may qualify for priority of service for Federal employment and training funds, provided they meet the eligibility criteria of the program to which they are applying. Covered persons include Veterans and certain spouses of Veterans.
Intensive services for individuals include, but are not limited to, career counseling, testing, skill development, computer literacy, resume preparation and job search assistance. Intensive services for employers include employee skills testing, employee training and human resources consulting.
