Services

Basic, core services are universally available to anyone. There is a dependable menu of services that may be directly offered at one or more locations:

  • career counseling and assessment
  • transitional assistance (dislocated workers)
  • employer and job seeker access to automated job postings
  • information on job trends and labor market data
  • assistance in filing unemployment insurance
  • help in finding federal or state dollars to cover some or all of the costs of training
  • information about employment and training providers to help the customer make informed choices
  • resources for job searches
  • employer assistance through recruitment and pre-screening of applicants
  • veterans services

These services are offered by a number of partner organizations who participate in this one-stop system. The cooperation among these partners makes the blend of these services seamless to you, the customer.

Customers can visit the centers directly. For some that may mean a visit to a location where partners are co-located. For others it may mean going to a community college or public library. Others can connect to an information center through a PC or a kiosk. For many, an Internet browser is all that's needed.
