Workforce Development Month

DEW is celebrating Workforce Development Month in September. During the month, DEW and SC Works partners will promote events for jobseekers and employers through job fairs, open house events, workshops, conferences, and more.

“South Carolina’s workforce is the backbone of the state’s economy. This month will highlight the abundant opportunities provided by our agency and partner agencies, to enhance the state and local job markets, increase participation in the labor force, and provide jobs that lead to economic independence for our workers in the state,” said S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce Executive Director Dan Ellzey.

There are more than 200 job fairs and workshops, dozens of visits by the Career Coach and the Be Pro Be Proud mobile workshop, discussion forums and roundtables, and weekly labor market information webinars. These events are virtual and in-person, some are statewide, while others are developed specifically for local areas. There are also events personalized for businesses, veterans, rural communities, jobseekers with barriers, and much more. For more specifics and to track activities for the month, please see the attached information sheet.

“South Carolina’s economy is one of the strongest in the nation because of the hardworking people who make up our workforce,” Gov. Henry McMaster said. “We have consistently invested in smart, targeted solutions to make sure South Carolinians are trained and ready to do the jobs that are available in our great state, but there’s always more work to be done. That’s why Workforce Development Month is so important – it gives us the opportunity to show our people the opportunities available to them and to focus on new, innovative ideas to build on our prosperity.”
