The Job Referral Office has established a separate list for 1st and 2nd year apprentices who wish to apply for employment at the Jacob Javits Convention Center (“Javits Center”).  All 1st and 2nd year apprentices are eligible to place their name on the list. 1st and 2nd year apprentices who place their names on the list will be eligible to complete an application for employment that will be forwarded by the District Council to the Javits Center.  The Javits Center will determine how many applicants it wishes to interview and whether to extend offers of employment.   All 1st and 2nd year apprentices wishing to place their names on this list should call the Out of Work List department at (212) 366-3330.  This list is ONLY to receive an application and a possible interview for employment at the Javits Center.

Application Process: Whenever the Javits Center requests applications, the Job Referral Office will contact 1st and 2nd year apprentices according to their position on the Javits Center list and give them the opportunity to come to the District Council to complete an application.

  1. 1.       If an apprentice declines the opportunity for any reason, his/her name will be removed from the list.  An apprentice who declines the opportunity may contact the Job Referral Office to have their name again added to the list to be considered for future opportunities.

  1. a.       They must come to the District Council at a scheduled date and time to complete an application
  2. b.      If they do not come within that time they will no longer be eligible and another person will be offered the opportunity in their place
  3. c.       The District Council will transmit completed applications to the Javits Center
  4. d.      Completing an application will not be counted as a referral for purposes of their eligibility to be on the Out of Work List.

  6. f.        They will be contacted by the Javits Center when work is available
  7. g.       Per the Out of Work List Rules, if they go to work at the Javits Center, they must inform the Job Referral Office and take their name off of the Out of Work List.
