About The Job Market
At The Job Market, job seekers and employers can access the support and services of over 30 collaborative partners, whose three main focal points are workforce preparation, economic development, and School-to-Career.
The Job Market began as part of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), a federal law that took effect in July, 2000, which calls for counties receiving WIA funds to establish "One-Stop" agencies in their communities. The Job Market, Humboldt County's "One-Stop," has been open since early 1999. Staff are drawn from some of the one-stop partners, including Employment Training Division; Employment Development Department; CalWORKs; and Experience Works.
Employers may take advantage of the meeting rooms, labor market information, small business development information, employee training programs, hiring incentives, and see job seekers' résumés on CalJOBS, all no-fees services available through The Job Market. Employers can also post job openings on our CalJOBS database. Call our Business Services line at (707) 441-5711 for information.
Job Seekers may use computers for job searchs, as well as attend workshops, pick up job listings, and meet with vocational counselors. There are always helpful staff to assist you. Click here for information on upcoming trainings.
