A Message from Mayor Steven M. Fulop
Welcome to the new and improved Jersey City Employment and Training Program (JCETP)!
In order to make Jersey City a first class city, we must have a robust jobs plan and it is a personal priority of mine to find every available job in Jersey City and match our residents to those opportunities. This will be realized with our new leadership and new vision at JCETP.
We believe investing in our families is an investment in our city and its future. We are building and broadening partnerships with our business community so that our entire city benefits from Jersey City’s growth and development. Not only will we continue to have an office on Summit Avenue, but we have also established an office on Martin Luther King, Jr. Drive as the “HUB”. We are also bolstering services including our jobs bank, job coaching, resume building, GED prep, apprenticeship programs, and CDL and computer training. All 250,000 Jersey City residents should visit the JCETP, as it is a resource and tool for improving their future.

Mayor of Jersey City
