Jobs Funnel: The Jobs Funnel is a pre-employment preparation and job training “stepping stone” for Connecticut residents who are seeking employment in construction and construction-related trades. The name “Jobs Funnel,” is taken from a process individuals go through – funneling into the system to gain specific work competencies and trade-related certifications. They then funnel out to build self-sustaining and rewarding careers. In Capital Workforce Partners’ region, there is a Jobs Funnel office in Hartford, New Britain, and Bristol that serve residents from all of North Central Connecticut.

American Job Center: Each year, millions of Americans receive career guidance, job placement, and business services from our nation’s “One-Stop Career Centers” known as the American Job Center Network. At these job centers, teams of career agents, job developers, and business services consultants have joined together, in partnership with the CT Department of Labor to help you reach your goals.
