Westhab Employment Services

Employment Services

Westhab has been offering employment and training programs in Westchester County since 1996 and in the last year alone we have placed 550 people in new jobs with an average hourly pay rate of $10.02 per hour. Our services are designed for those with limited academic skills and work experience, and our client-centered approach focuses on career track job development and retention strategies. Specific services include: employment case management and the development of individualized employment plans, employment readiness training, skills training with referral and follow-up, job development and placement and job retention counseling.

Westhab offers these programs and services to those in enrolled in our programs and are also available to the public through our Community Resource Centers in Yonkers (103 Elm Street) and Mount Vernon (49 East 3rd Street).

Westhab Employment Services has placed over 2,000 clients into full time jobs in the New York metro area since 1996. We tailor our services to meet the needs of both the job-seeker and the employer in order to create the most successful "match".

In an effort to expand the pool of jobs available to our clients and to ensure successful placements, Westhab establishes strong relationships with employers and even makes available a wage subsidy program.

Employer Testimonial - Henry Jones, President/CEO - Exceptional Cleaning Corp.
Exceptional Cleaning in Ossining has been one of Westhab’s Wage Subsidy employer partners for over five years. Its president, Henry Jones, shared the following with us recently: "Westhab's Wage Subsidy Program has been extremely beneficial to [our] staffing efforts. There is no arguing that the economic benefits are ideal to assist the small business owner in navigating often complex Human Resources issues. Westhab's initial screening and job retention counseling services save valuable time since only those candidates who are well suited to our business culture are referred to us. On those rare occasions when an employee might need to be replaced Westhab is prompt in presenting alternative candidates."

First Source Job Center Opens

As our downtown development efforts kick into high gear, it's vital that new investments translate into good jobs and career opportunities for New Rochelle residents. That's the idea behind our First Source job training program.

As Ayanna Wayner, New Rochelle's Deputy Commissioner of Economic Development, puts it, "unlike the majority of local hiring initiatives, First Source's extensive program not only puts individuals in touch with potential employers, but offers the necessary certification and training to adequately prepare job seekers for job opportunities, creating not just jobs, but careers."
