Where is the Unemployment Office in Greensboro, North Carolina?

The Employment Security Commission, also called the “Unemployment Office,” changed its name. It is now called the NCWorks Career Center, and is one of two Centers in Guilford County.

The Department of Commerce and Employment Security Commission merged, creating an opportunity to coordinate local workforce services. The objective was to create a model for a system that provides more integrated one-stop service delivery – The Integrated Service Delivery Model, or ISD. The ISD Model was implemented by the Guilford County Workforce Development Board in March 2014.  The ISD Model includes the following three basic functions:

  • Talent Engagement
    • Welcome Team
    • One-on-one Interview
    • NCWorks Online Registration
    • Needs Assessment
  • Talent Development
    • Career Exploration & Planning
    • Comprehensive Assessments
    • Job Readiness Classes
    • Skill Building/Upgrading
  • Employer/Employment Solutions
    • Employment Referrals & Networking
    • Job Listing & Job Matching
    • Hiring Events & Career Fairs

In Greensboro, the new Center is located at:

2301 W Meadowview Road, Greensboro, NC 27407

Phone: 336-297-9444

In High Point, the Center is located at:

607 Idol Street, High Point, NC 27262

Networking is NOT Just for Job Seekers

When motivating job seekers, I’m an advocate of advising you to, “get it together, prepare for the worst, get back up, and try again.” Yet, even a golf ball hangs low after being hit so many times! Many social media sites have users who share motivation and encouragement; yet, “Motivation Monday” may not be enough to get you up moving again. Only YOU know your limits. When it’s time to re-charge, re-vamp, or renew, do it! Get on the computer, find a support group near you, and get out of the house! Continue reading “Networking is NOT Just for Job Seekers”
