How Newark 2020 Works

Newark 2020 starts when you create a profile, tell us what you are interested in, and upload your resume.  Then, you will meet with us to discuss your profile and your career goals.  After you meet with us in person, you will be given access to our custom jobs page that show current career opportunities with participating employers and others. You will then be able to apply for specific jobs or be enrolled in a basic skills training program. Keep in touch with us through the contact information below, because we want to work with you until you are over the finish line.

About the Program

 The initial goal of Newark 2020 is to cut the unemployment gap between Newark and New Jersey in half by connecting 2,020 unemployed residents to well-paying jobs by the year 2020. Our mission is to ensure that Newark residents are competitive candidates for employment and that they receive fair consideration for positions in each industry. Newark 2020 partners have each committed to hire a specific number of Newark residents over the next three years.


Through this unprecedented partnership we can ensure that Newark residents in every neighborhood have the opportunity to benefit from the rapid growth of downtown development and investment.
