To help you find your next job, the AJCCs listed below provide free services such as:

  • Access to local, regional and national job listings, including the CALJOBS Internet job match system.
  • Contacts with local employers who are seeking workers.
  • Tools to help you assess you interests, aptitudes, skills and values so you can find the job that suits you best.
  • Seminars that will show you how to improve your qualifications and job search skills.
  • Assistance in preparing a strong, effective resume.
  • Connections to Bay Area organizations where you can get training, further your education or obtain support services.
  • Program links that can set you on a productive career path.
  • Job and career coaching.
  • An extensive, multimedia resource library with up-to-date information on jobs, careers, companies and the labor market.
