About Our Workforce Services

We offer workforce services as part of the federal and State of California’s public workforce service system. Our role is to connect job seekers with employers through the America’s Job Center of CaliforniaSM (AJCC), who provides jobs and training services.

Workforce Services programs are designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training and support services to find success in the labor market. All job seekers, including youth, veterans, people with disabilities, migrant and seasonal farmers, underemployed and unemployed, can benefit from the many services offered.

We offer a variety of employment services, including:

  • Career counseling
  • Job skills training
  • Job search training workshops
  • Labor market information

For many job seekers, California’s online labor exchange system, CalJOBSSM is a valuable resource to find their next job opportunities. Job seekers who are not familiar with computers can get help from the customer service staff in an America’s Job Center of California (AJCC).

If you need more help, CalJOBSSM and America’s Job Center of California (AJCC) locations provide several employment assistance programs at no cost to help you find the right job.
