What was for years Northern Essex Community College's bookstore is now the ValleyWorks Career Center’s Haverhill office. The college and the career center hosted a grand opening on Nov. 18 to show off the new space, which was renovated extensively by the college to fit the needs of the career center.
The ValleyWorks Career Center is a one-stop career center, providing a wide range of services to job seekers and businesses in the Merrimack Valley. In addition to the Haverhill site, Valley Works has a Lawrence site, located at 439 South Union St.
As part of the opening, the resource room in the new career center was dedicated in memory of Ron DiNicola, the former manager of the Haverhill ValleyWorks, who died soon after retiring 2012. The plaque that was unveiled at the ceremony and will be placed in the resource room reads “inspiring leader, mentor, and friend to all.”
