Capital Workforce Partners, through the American Job Centers (AJC), continues to serve clients virtually, by phone and in person. In an effort to continue to address the community’s workforce needs, we have set up a “Job Seeker and Employer Help Line” designed to provide potential temporary employment options and support to individuals who may have been dislocated due to COVID-19. This may consist of referring individuals to job opportunities, to community partners and programs, as well as directly to AJC programs working through a virtual model.
All American Job Centers are open to the public. Customers can walk in and get services or call to make an appointment (preferred).
