Middle Township will be addressing the area job market at a public meeting scheduled for April 3rd at 6 p.m. in Township Hall.  The discussion, hosted by the Economic Development Council hopes to resolve the contradiction of a lack of jobs and the inability of employers to fill positions.  Presenters include Cape May County One Stop, Jersey Cape Diagnostics and Training, Atlantic Cape Community College, and Cape Regional Medical Center.

The goal of the meeting is for the community to be more successful in connecting workers and jobs, and to prepare our work force for the jobs that are available now or in the future.

Also participating is Cape May County business D-Tech, a company that invents, designs and manufactures high-end library equipment for large libraries around the world. They are a growing company and will provide information on the positions they are looking to fill, and the qualifications required.  Atlantic Cape Community College will be discussing their training programs, including the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Specialist program.

Middle´s Economic Development Council hosts monthly open meetings to explore and discuss increasing employment and economic opportunities for local residents. One of the primary goals is to make Middle Township more attractive for businesses to expand and grow with the goal of well-paying jobs, amenities for the residents and tourists, and a stronger local economy.
