GALLOWAY– The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey is providing potential job seekers who lack up-to-date technological tools with access to computers at the college’s facilities in Atlantic City, Hammonton, Manahawkin and the college’s main campus in Galloway Township beginning on Monday, July 28 through Thursday, Aug. 28.

“Stockton’s Center for Community Engagement (SCCE) is aware that many employees may be entering the job market for the first time in many years and may not have up-to-date tools,” said Dr. Merydawilda Colon, interim executive director of the center. Community resources such as local libraries and One-Stop Career Centers provided by the state Department of Labor and Workforce Development have limited numbers of computers, so the college is prepared to help, Dr. Colon explained.
The SCCE has partnered with the Retail, Hospitality and Tourism Talent Network of South Jersey at Stockton and coordinated with the Carnegie Center in Atlantic City, Stockton's main campus in Galloway, Kramer Hall in Hammonton, and the Manahawkin Instructional Site to allow any recently laid off workers as well as others concerned about their future employment to use computers for writing resumes and completing job applications.
Community members will need to have computer skills to take advantage of this first-come, first-served access at the various locations.
