Get Hands-On Job Search Help at a CareerOneStop Center

Job seekers who are computer savvy have an abundance of resources on the web. Sometimes, though, human contact can complement what you find online.

Last week, a visitor to our Facebook page suggested we talk about the many CareerOneStop centers throughout the U.S. that provide job search assistance.

We thought it was a great idea!

In a nutshell, CareerOneStop is a service of the U.S. Department of Labor, with more than 3,000 local One-Stop Career Centers around the country. Their main purpose is to assist job seekers by connecting them with employment and training opportunities.

The CareerOneStop web site provides contact information for a range of local work-related services, including unemployment benefits, career development, and educational offerings. Go to the Service Locator page to find the office nearest you.

The program also hosts a wealth of other career services, which you can discover just by visiting the home page.  It also provides links to information about unemployment benefits in your state.

Check it out.
