The coworking space MakeIT Haverhill opens its doors Monday afternoons to help residents with job searches.

MakeIT Haverhill is working with MassHire and offering internet and laptop access to the state’s “JobQuest” service from 2-4 p.m., Mondays, at 301 Washington St. There are socially distanced setups with temperature checks, hand sanitizer, wipes and gloves as part of prevailing COVID-19 guidelines.

The organization is also working with YWCA and the Haverhill Public Library to offer a series of “Job Readiness Workshops,” beginning Wednesday, Oct. 21, with a class on “Self-Esteem and Self-Care.” Classes, limited to eight, continue Wednesdays through Nov. 18. Those wishing to register are asked to call the YWCA’s Renee Mcguire at 978-374-6121 or email [email protected].

In August, Haverhill’s employment rate was 12.8%—down from 18.6% in July, but up substantially over last year’s 3% unemployment.

The 2,000-square-foot space in Mount Washington is a nonprofit partnership of Community Action and Urban Kindness.
