Welcome to Charlotte Works and NCWorks Online: Serving you better

Whether you’re unemployed or under-employed, searching for a new job can be frustrating and overwhelming. You need all the resources you can get – and you need them free, fast and easy.

Charlotte Works is here to help. We provide job-seekers with a variety of no-cost resources including world-class workshops, networking opportunities, coaching and (depending on eligibility) training support to help you find your next career.

NCWorks Online is a robust website launched by the state of North Carolina to better connect you to employers and their thousands of job listings across the state. By registering on NCWorks Online, you can:

  • Access jobs posted directly by employers as well as those collected from major career sites such as CareerBuilder, Monster, LinkedIn and more – all aggregated in one place online so you no longer have to search multiple sites. NCWorks Online is free, so more employers will post more jobs.
  • Apply to those jobs directly from NCWorks Online, using a resume and cover letter you create with the site’s easy-to-use tools (or upload your own).
  • Help employers find you faster by being present on NCWorks Online. (Employers from across the country may look at NCWorks Online to assess available talent when considering whether to relocate to Charlotte; don’t miss your chance to let them know you’re here!)
  • Create a “virtual recruiter” to search job postings and notify you when one matches your skills.
  • Track your job-search activities.
  • Research real-time labor market information such as salaries.
  • Assess your job skills, research training providers, determine a training budget and create a training plan.
  • Register for all of our workshops and events, including coaching sessions, fairs and more.
  • Contact a member of our staff to learn about and determine if you’re eligible to receive an On-The-Job Training grant through your new employer or participate in classroom-based or other training programs to enhance your skills.

Charlotte Works requires all job-seekers to register on NCWorks Online to access our programs and services.
