The Arapahoe/Douglas Works! workforce center is celebrating Colorado's Workforce Development Month in September by offering an increased variety of workshops, assessments and hiring events for job seekers and employers. The public can learn about the activities planned throughout the month by visiting www.adworks.org and clicking on "Upcoming Events."

The events planned by Arapahoe/Douglas Works! during Workforce Development Month include:

• 10 hiring events, including Wells Fargo, Sprint, TransForce, FedEx Ground, Powell Law Office and McDonald's;

• Dozens of general workshops for job seekers on topics ranging from résumés and cover letters to starting a business, networking, social media and steps to federal employment;

• Targeted workshops for youth, veterans, ex-offenders, disabled and 50 plus job-seekers;

• Degrees to Work!, a two-week, customized workshop series for college graduates who earned a degree but have never found employment; and,

• Resource sessions for businesses on the Work Opportunity Tax Credit, federal bonding and federal civil rights regulations.

In addition, job-seekers and businesses can tap into the broad array of no-cost services that are available year-round at the workforce center, such as career and personality assessments, referrals to community resources, and workforce education and training opportunities. The experienced staff also offers individual assistance with career exploration and planning, finding job listings, résumé critiques and more.

Pre-registration for all events is required. Event locations vary and will include Centennial, Aurora and Castle Rock. There is no cost for any event or service.
