City Council President Loretta Scott, Mayor Lovely Warren and WDKX invite you to a the Local Government Jobs Seminar which will be held on Saturday March 25, 2017 at 10:30 am at the Rundel Building at the Central Library, 115 South Ave. You will learn how to apply for a government job, how to prepare for a Civil Service Exam, and test taking tips and strategies.
You'll also learn about job opportunities from local government agencies including: the City of Rochester, Rochester City School District, Monroe County, the New York State Department of Labor and the Rochester Housing Authority. The City of Rochester hires, on average, 150 full time employees each year, including police officers, firefighters, 911 dispatchers, building inspectors, account clerks and refuse collectors. The county and state of New York hire hundreds more. Approximately 25 percent of the City’s full-time employees are eligible for retirement and that number is growing. Other government agencies are also dealing with a growing number of employees who are eligible for retirement.
Opportunities to work for the government will be available for the foreseeable future even as governments reduce their work forces. These are good jobs, with competitive wages and excellent benefits, including healthcare, paid time off and a pension. In fact, these are more than good jobs. They are the gateway to rewarding careers in public service. Every citizen should have an opportunity to apply for them. They just need to know how.
