America’s Job Center of California - a great resource for local companies and job seekers

SCVEDC knows that finding skilled workers is one of the toughest challenges facing businesses in today’s tight labor market. That’s why training and apprenticeship programs are so important. Companies are growing their own talent, but are tapping into resources such as community colleges and the workforce development boards that are part of the public workforce system. In the past year, new apprenticeship programs for the aerospace and logistics industries are helping employees advance their skills quickly.

Did you know that there is a FREE resource to help your business find the employees that it needs? The America’s Job Center of California (AJCC) will continue to be operated by College of the Canyons (COC), which is great news for SCV employers. The Santa Clarita AJCC provides comprehensive services to both job seekers looking to find sustainable employment and employers seeking qualified candidates for their current or upcoming openings with the goal of increasing the prosperity of workers and employers in the United States. Employers are matched with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy. Job Seekers can access employment, education, training, and support services to succeed in the labor market. Because the AJCC is operated by COC, employers and job seekers can also access workforce development and training programs that they need, and these programs remain relevant to the needs of today’s employers.
