JOB CENTERS ROLL OUT RED CARPET
WITH GRAND OPENINGS
Relocated Homer and Seward centers offer improved space
Job seekers and local
businesses needing workers will still find the same great service at
Alaska job center offices in Seward and recently relocated to provide better
service to the mostly tourist-oriented, commercial, and sport-fishing
"We're always striving to provide the best service possible and are
pleased with our new arrangements," said Ed Flanagan, commissioner of
the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development, whose
Employment Security Division administers employment and job training
services through Alaska's job centers. "We invite everyone to celebrate
the grand openings and look forward to showing peninsula area residents
the wide variety of services our job centers have to offer."
To celebrate the dual move, open houses will be held at both new
locations, first in Seward on Wednesday, September 19, from 1:30-4:30
p.m., and then in Homer on Thursday, September 20 from 1:30-3:30 p.m.
These two job centers and the Peninsula Job Center in Kenai are part of
a statewide team of job centers that serve state residents regionally,
in this case the Kenai Peninsula.
The Homer Job Center has relocated to 270 West Pioneer, at the corner of
Bartlett and Pioneer. The Seward Job Center is now at 809 Second Avenue,
in the Alaska Vocational Technical Center (AVTEC).
The phone numbers remain the same at (907) 235-7791 for Homer and (907)
224-5276 for Seward.
