We also have the Mobile Career Center that travels to various counties providing computer access to job seekers. Read on to see how we can help you!

This initial visit could take up to 1 hour. Please bring your ID with you, and if you have a resume, bring that as well.

Once I have completed the full registration process, what will I have access to?

  • Workshops
  • Assessments
  • Resume assistance
  • Job search assistance
  • Computers with internet, fax machine, and phones for job search activities
