DO YOU KNOW IF YOU COUNT?
The unemployment rate for the City of New Haven is reported at only 88
%*
The State of Connecticut Department of Labor using the following definitions determines that figure;
LABOR FORCE CONCEPTS (As reprinted from DOL Office of Research)
The civilian labor force comprises all state residents age 16 years and older classified as employed or unemployed in accordance with criteria
described below. Excluded are members of the military and persons in institutions (correctional and mental health, for example).
The employed are all persons who did any work as paid employees or in their own business during the survey week, or who have worked 1 5
hours or more as unpaid workers in an enterprise operated by a family member. Persons temporarily absent from ajob because of illness, had
weather, strike or for personal reasons are also counted as employed whether they were paid by their employer or were seeking otherjobs.
The unemployed are all persons who did not work, but were available for work during the survey week (except for temporary illness) and
made specific efforts to find ajob in the prior four weeks. Persons waiting to be recalled to ajob from which they had been laid off need not be
looking for work to be classified as unemployed.
The unemployment rate represents the number unemployed as a percent of the civilian labor force.
With the exception of those persons temporarily absent from ajob or waiting to be recalled to one, persons with riojQb and who are no
actively looking for orJeare counted as “not in the labor force”.
Over the course of a year, the size of the labor force and levels of employment undergo fluctuations due to such seasonal events as changes in
weather, reduced or expanded production, harvests, major holidays and closing of schools. Because these seasonal events follow a regular
pattern each year, their influence on statistical trends can be eliminated by adjusting the monthly statistics. Seasonal Adjustment makes it easier
to observe cyclical and other non-seasonal developments.
The state Job Service is where you would traditionally receive help in seeking out employers who are hiring and receive other services
to help prepare for the job market.
MAKE SURE YOU COUNT!
Go and get registered with the State of Connecticut Department of Labor 37 Marne Street as a Job Seeker.
Keep in monthly contact stay included in the unemployment rate.

Seek out community groups for assistance, including those for unemployed people, who help one another
with leads,
references and other support. Programs, both formal and informal, have started in communities nationwide.
If you can’t find a group in your community, start one. With nearly a quarter of Americans laid off at some
point because of the
recession, you do not have to be alone in your search. Be willing to help others in your groups. Paying it forward
can be of great

if you let them
now you started a group or are active in one that helps people in the community.
•
Use online sites, including Linkedln.
If ye.u don’t have a Linkedln profile, create one. Employers use this site to look for new talent so make sure
your profile
contains keywords that are relevant to jobs that interest you.
Use the search function on Linkedln to find profiles of people seeking positions similar to what you are interested
in pursuing.
Then use these profiles as templates to modify your profile.
See what companies your connections and their connections have worked for. Those who worked at a company
a few years
ago likely stiil know people who work there.
Join groups that apply to you. Many industries, regions and even companies have their own pages. These
are a great source
of information and a way to keep current with what’s happening in a particular field.
•
Reach out to employers that interest you.
Many companies host open houses or exhibitions to showcase their work. If it looks interesting to you, check
it out. Ask
questions and make some contacts, too.
If you want to talk with someone at an organization, go for it. Reach out to a firm you have great interest in
and ask to come in
and learn more about it. Don’t mention employment in the first conversation. A good first impression
can lead to that important
referral or helpful information.
•
Look for local nonprofit or government organizations that can help you with yourjob search.
Never pay an organization to find you a job—most likely it is not a legitimate business.
Take advantage of the services that government-funded Career One Stop centers offer. These centers
provide free assistance
to job seekers. More information is available at http/www.careeronestop.org/
I earn about local r. onprofit organizations serving the long-term unemployed. The programs are
as varied as the communities
they serve and can be researched online.
Step 5: Become More Technologically Proficient
Its no secret that many employers look up their applicants online. While most people know to
keep offensive pictures and
posts off Facebook, you can take this a step further by creating a brand for yourself. Use Linkedln
as your primary tool, but ieam
more about how to effectively use Twitter and Facebook as a means of “branding yourself.”
Social networks are an excellent way to interact with potential employers. Sharing information
via a status update on Linkedln
or re-tweeting or tvveeting at an employer or sending messages on Facebook with relevant information
can get you noticed.
Scanning blogs on relevant topics allows you to stay up-to-date with the industry and hear different perspectives.
Commenting
on blogs and engaging with their authors are other valuable methods of gaining contacts in the
field.
Joining istserves is a great way to crowdsource your information gathering. People often mention
opportunities they heard of
or topics they think are worth sharing.
Although it’s efficient to comb through the larger online job boards, it’s worth noting that many
listings receive hundreds of
applicants. One way to find less visible opportunities is to research what companies you might
like to work for and search their
sites for vacancies, It takes longer to do this, but you mayjust find that perfect under-the-radar
opportunity. Following up your
application with a message to the company contact person further enhances your potential of
being noticed.
If you need help in navigating the world of computers or even getting access to a computer consider
a local library. Most
iihraries have computers available to the public, and some offer free resources like classes or coaching.
Career One-Stops also
offer classes and computers for public use.
Step 6: Prepare for your future interview
Get fit by exercising and eating right. When you feel good you will come across well in an interview.
Consider how you look. A good haircut and neat, clean business attire are a way to say “I respect
myself.” You don’t have to
buy expensive suits if you don’t have the budget; just scour the resale shops, and make sure the
clothes fit and are clean and
ironed.
Address gaps in your resume’s work history upfront. Offering an explanation prevents a potential employer
from making
assumptions that may be incorrect. Similarly, take the opportunity to address any possible concerns
about your being
overqualified for the position. When a candidate raises the issue, this can help put an employer’s mind
at ease.
Never underestimate the value of a handwritten note. Send one to each person who takes time to meet
with you in an
interview or with whom you have a key networking conversation. In a high-tech world, the high-touch
approach always gets
noticed.

5 Qus6ons Every Candidite i1d Ask in.
a Job Inten4w
ffiJoniniqur Rodcrr’c
Mfzisfer obuHngWritPr
For many job seekers, the”Do
you have any questions for
me;” portion of an interview
signals the end is neat. It’s
tempting to just sav”no”and
get out of the hot seat as
quickly as possible, but fight
that urge.
Asking questions shows the
interviewer you were listening
while they were talking, con
vevs your interest in the corn
pany and helps you decide if
it’s where you want to work.
After all, interviews are a twoway street the hiring team
decides whether you’re what
they want in an employee, and
you decide if the company
culture and specific role are
where you want to devote
your time and energy for the
foreseeable future.
--
FTere are five essential ques
tions you should ask In a
job interview,
1. “flow do you define uc
ce for this Job?”
This question helps you get a
clear understanding of what
the job entails and the expêc
tations the company will have
for you in it, says John Crossman, president of real estate
management firm Crossman
& Company.
For example, if you’re apply
iñg for a sales position. an
answer to this question might
be that you acquire 10 new cli
erts in the next 90 days. It
may also he that ‘ou upsell
current custothers by 25 per
cent over 90 days. As a candi
date, you’ll wart to know
whether you’ll be cold-calling
prospects or focusing on exist
ing customers before you
make your decision.
2. Snmefithg specific about
the organization
It’s always a great idea to ask
a question that shows you did
your research before the inter
view says Chris Delaney,
author ofThe 73 Rules of
Influencing the Interview.” He
recommends building rapport
and showcasing your research
skills with a technique he calls
“share expertise, ask ques
tion.”
His example: “1 recently read
that the organization is look
ing to break into Europe.
What do you foresee as the
main barrier with this proj
3.”Can I have a quick
tour?”
See also:”Can I meet some
people I’d be working with?”
Both questipns will get you
out of the interview room and
allow you to get a better look
at the office. This will give you
a chance to gauge co-worker
interaction, workspace design
(lighting, noise level, cleanb
ness) and the deoartment as a
whole, says Michelle Corner,
practice area leader and vice
president at the Messirta
Group, a staffing consulting
firm.
Requesting a tour or a quick
introduction to potential co
workers also “signals to the
interviewer that a candidate is
taking a vested interest in the
position,” she says.
4. “What is your favorite
part about working here?”
“Companies, like job candi
dates, are putting their best
foot forward during the inter
view process, often highlight
ing all of their corporate
perks. By asking every person
you interview with what they
like best about working at the
company you’ll get a better
sense of the perks that people
regularly experience versus
the perks that live only on
paper,” explains Sherry Dixon,
a senior vice president at
Adecco Staffing US.
“If the interviewer responds
that they love how they can
make their vega class each
night and log back onto work
from home if ne’ded, then
you know the company takes
work-life balance seriously,”
she explains.
5. “Do you see any reaon T
might not he a good fit for
this position?”
It may seem counterintuitive
to inquire about your poten
tial flaws during an intervie
but it’s actually a great thing
to bring up at the end of the
interview says Morgan Nlich
ols, rnanagiug partner at Chi
cago-based recruiting and
staffing firm Torrev & Gray.
“This gives you an opportuni
ty to know that the interview
er is thinking about you and
gives you a last chance to clar
ifv any misconceptions they
may have or elaborate further
on something important.”

Ready To Work
Program summery
On October 1 5, 2014, the U.S. Department of Labor announced SI 69,771,960 in grants to expedite the
employment of Americans struggling with long-term unemployment. The grants are part of the Ready to
Work Partnership (Ready To Work) initiative to support and scale innovative collaborations between
employers, nonprofit organizations and federal job training programs to help connect ready-to-work
Americans with ready-to-be-filled jobs. (in CT S 12 million)
-
This program responds to the President’s call to action to support and expand public-private partnerships
that are helping long-term unemployed individuals get back to work. The Ready To Work grant program
will provide those experiencing long-term unemployment with a range of training and supportive and
specialized services leading to rapid employment in middle and high-skilled jobs.
Ready To Work projects are built around a comprehensive, up-front assessment of long-term unemployed
individuals’ needs and skills, resulting in customized interventions across three tracks: I) intensive coaching
and other short-term, specialized services culminating in directjob placement into middle and high-skilled
jobs; 2) short-term interventions leading to employment into middle and high-skilled jobs; and 3)
accelerated skills training along a career pathway to middle and high skilled jobs.
Projects incorporate work-based training models with earning components for long-term unemployed
workers through models such as on-the-job training (OJT), paid work experience, paid internships, and
Registered Apprenticeships. These programs also include tangible commitments from employers and other
partners to provide employment opportunities, technical skills training, and on-the-job training and other
paid work experience for H-i B occupations, while also addressing the barriers, income needs, and
supportive service needs unique to long-term unemployed workers.

The road to employment starts with
an interview. Today’s jobs are often
many miles away from where people
live. RTW may provide transportation

The Workforce Alliance and the CT Department of Labor often arrange on-site job fairs at an employer’s location. Job fairs are a big help for
employers. Reading your resume is not enough; employers must meet and interview job-seekers. Job fairs save employers time and money,
and increase your chances of landing a good job.
The RTW Auto Emergency Fund Car repair bills and the rising cost of insurance can take a big chunk out of a paycheck. Sometimes, it’s just
too much. The RTW Auto Emergency Fund offers one-time grants up to $600 to help you keep your car on the road. Use it for repairs,
registration or driver’s license fees, or to pay car insurance. Don’t let a bump in the road keep you from getting to work.
-
Start Right Don’t let the cost of commuting keep you from taking a job. Try “Job Starter”, the RTW program that provides free
transportation for your first month of employment. “Job Starter” gives you time to catch up and begin affording the commute.

Employment and Training
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) recipients throughout
Connecticut may be eligible to participate in an Employment and Training Program. The Employment and
Training program was created by Congress in 1987 as a means to assist able-bodied clients in obtaining
employment. From the start, the purpose of the Employment and Training program has been to help
SNAP households gain skills that will increase self-sufficiency. States are allowed flexibility in designing and
operating their Employment and Training programs.
If you are receiving SNAP in Connecticut, and not receiving financial assistance from the Temporary Family
Assistance program, you may be eligible to participate in one of the following activities; English as a Second
Language, General Equivalency Diploma, Adult Basic Education, Work Experience or Structured Job Search
Skill Training. The Connecticut Employment and Training program also offers short term vocational
programs at several area colleges and nonprofit providers.
DSS has currently partnered with ten organizations to provide these Employment and Training program
services. They are:

ABOUT NEW HAVEN WORKS
In January 2012, the New Haven Board of Aldermen created a Jobs
Pipeline Working Group to investigate solutions for New Haven’s
unemployment and under-employment and regional employers’ needs for
well-trained job applicants.
The Working Group, which included individuals representing the business
and institutional community, labor, elected leaders, city officials, foundations,
the workforce system, un- and under-employed residents, and youth,
advocated for a new program called New Haven Works” that would partner
with employers, seivice providers and the workforce system to match
qualified New Haven residents to regional job opportunities.
New Haven Works seeks to grow the local economy and improve
economic stability in all communities by providing employers with a trained
and qualified workforce and connecting residents to goodjobs.
Established in October 2012, New Haven Works is governed by an
independent board of directors, and will be funded by public and private
sources.
New Haven Works opened an office at 205 Whitney Avenue —just one
year after the first convening of the Board of Aldermen’s Working Group!

Our Mission

Our Services
NCD is a group of college students committed to bridging the gap between the college community
and New Haven at large. We offer a welcoming environment providing case management for low—
income and homeless clients. NCD is run entirely by volunteers, with cooperation from several
gracious community partners.
No Closed Doors aims to harness the skills of college students to break down barriers and open
doors between people and the resources that they need to succeed. We believe that everyone in our
community should have access to the services, opportunities and attention they need to achieve
personal success.
Our service is unique in that it has no eligibility requirements for clients. We do not turn anyone
away, unless they pose a security threat to themselves, other clients or volunteers. In addition, there
is no limit on the services that clients can receive from us. All of our volunteers are passionate and
friendly college students, eager to provide flexible and comprehensive assistance that complements
the more specialized services provided by other community organizations. Our program is also
unique for students, as it provides an outlet for them to make a direct, substantial, and meaningful
impact in the community in which they live and study.
NCD WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL THE
WEEK OF JANUARY 201 5
PLEASE PLAN OF CONTACTING THEM AT THAT TIME
2ND
We welcome walk—ins, though to ensure that we can fit you into our schedule we recommend
that you call us at (203) 752—9711, e—mail us [email protected]
or fill out the form found on our website: www.yale.edu/ncd under the clients section.
NCD’s success is contingent on successful partnerships with other community service agencies from around
New Haven. Please let us know if you are interested in referring clients to our organization, having us refer
clients to you, or partnering with our outreach team to connect with our city’s most marginalized citizens.
