NCWorks Career Center Information

While the NCWorks Career Centers throughout the High Country are currently closed to the public due to COVID-19, customers may still call the office to speak to a staff person regarding services/unemployment information. Center contact information can be found here.  You may also continue to access NCWorks Online at www.ncworks.gov.

Also, remember that NCWorks Career Centers are not actually “unemployment offices,” and we do not process Unemployment Insurance claims. We do help unemployed jobseekers to find new jobs. Currently, you do not need to visit NCWorks to file an unemployment insurance claim. To apply for unemployment benefits, visit www.des.nc.gov or call: 888-737-0259.
