"Vermont's economy was bolstered by a successful 2014-2015 ski season, as evidenced by the year over year comparisons within the Leisure and Hospitality sector measurements. We are focusing on the new seasonal job opportunities in this sector, and in Construction and Manufacturing. The Department of Labor is working on several initiatives to connect veterans, dislocated and trade adjusted workers, and long-term unemployed to training programs that guarantee jobs at the end of the training. We are working with well-known employers who are hiring. Some of these initiatives include pre-apprentice and apprenticeships, industry credentialing, and federally-funded On-the-Job Trainings (OJTs). The best way for job seekers to learn more about these and other programs is to visit with staff in one of our 12 regional career resource centers. There are many employers who are in need of workers, and it is often a matter of having assistance in making the connection with the right person within the organization, which the Department can facilitate."
