— The Capital Area Workforce Development Board has opened additional locations, called SHARE access sites, to help job seekers.

These sites, often set up in churches and community centers, are similar to offices of the  Employment Security Commission in that they all offer basic job-seeker services and aim to help cut back on waits and help serve more people. Some services, such as access to other partner services, however, are only available at the local ESC offices.

The four new sites in Wake and Johnston counties bring the number in both counties to 13.

SHARE Access Points elsewhere in the state can be found by calling the state Division of Workforce Development at 919-329-5230 or the state Department of Commerce at 800-562-6333.

The access points are funded by work force development boards throughout the state.
