Connecting Job Seekers and Employers in Harlem

HCCI and Workforce1 Harlem

Workforce1 Career Centers prepare and connect job seekers to employment opportunities in NYC. They also make strong matches between employers and employees.

During the early days of the pandemic, Harlem was eerily deserted. Due to stay-at-home orders, neighborhoods resembled ghost towns.

Grant Associates has signed a lease for the sixth floor of an office building in central Harlem. ABS Partners’ Andy Udis and Alison Miller handled the deal.

About Us

Since its inception HCCI has provided an array of employment development programs for the Harlem community including job screenings, job training and application assistance for local Pathmark Supermarkets and a temporary Construction Trades Academy. HCCI also offers free interviewing classes which provide referrals to Dress for Success and Career Gear, and resume writing assistance by appointment only. HCCI is a partner of Workforce1 New York City. Currently Workforce1 offers weekly classes and one-on-one in-person appointments for job seekers across the five boroughs.


Workforce1 is a free, one-stop career center affiliated with NYC Department of Labor. Our services include job screenings, resume preparation workshops and career coaching to prepare and connect NYC residents to jobs and training opportunities.

In the community we offer locally-offered programs and services to promote stable housing, neighborhood safety, reentry services and youth programming. Our community development efforts include a housing help center, the neighborhood safety initiative, and the men’s empowerment program.

I have been working with Palante Harlem during the COVID-19 pandemic and they do great work in helping tenants apply for rental assistance. They also do great community outreach with their bodega Fridays where they provide food to the public.

I have not had good experiences with the workers at the Harlem Workforce1 office. The Staten Island location has a woman that is very rude. She is always huffing and puffing and talking down to people who come in to get help.

Job Opportunities

Workforce1 Career Centers provide free services to help New Yorkers prepare for and connect to jobs. Our no-cost, in-person centers offer job listings and recruitment events, employment readiness workshops, resume assistance, interview preparation and career counseling.

HCCI’s current program offerings include workforce development services for the local Pathmark Supermarket as well as a Construction Trades Academy in response to the local real estate boom in Harlem and other surrounding neighborhoods. We also have partnered with the Upper Manhattan Workforce1 Career Center to screen, assess and train jobseekers in a variety of job sectors including hospitality, retail, healthcare, and business administration.

HCCI is currently conducting a CNA / LPN / RN Staffing Hiring Event on Wednesday October 17th. Interested candidates must attend the pre-screening event in person at the West Farms Workforce1 Career Center to be slotted for interviews. This is a confidential event. Please bring your job ID and a valid form of identification to the event.
