Guiding You Through the Work Search Process
The Employment Services Group (ESG) at OACES guides students through the job search process. This office provides not only career direction for students, but offers support services for employers in identifying and placing qualified candidates. ESG works closely with OACES programs such as Community & Adults in Rochester Employment and Education Resource System (C.A.R.E.E.R.S.), Career & Technical Education (CTE) and the Apprenticeship program to supply the Rochester community with educated and qualified employees.
