One-Stop Job Centers

Looking for employment? Here are free local resources

En español | With unabating high unemployment rates among Latinos, local career centers can offer critical resources for finding jobs. And it's all free: skills assessment, interview techniques, job listings, phones, computers and more. Some 3,000 of these government-funded centers are available to job seekers, from those with limited education and work experience to people with advanced degrees and years in the workplace.

In a center in the Austin, Texas, area, Clara Miller, of Mexican descent, says her clients mainly need Internet access. "Our most popular workshop teaches how to use our website, customized for job search, so clients can get job leads."

To find a One-Stop Career Center located near you, visit servicelocator.org or call 877-US2-JOBS.
