New Jersey's One-Stop Career Center System


The cornerstone of New Jersey's workforce investment system is the establishment and continuous improvement of the One-Stop Career Centers. To help job seekers find work, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and local Workforce Investment Boards have created One-Stop Career Centers. The centers, in 29 locations throughout New Jersey, offer many services that you can access both in person and online. Local One-Stop Centers deliver a variety of customer-driven workforce development programs and services to job seekers and businesses. The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) implementation has seen the One-Stop partners work together more efficiently to serve residents of New Jersey in creative and innovative ways. Federal, state and local partners have identified and seized many opportunities to improve the workforce development system, and to deliver comprehensive, integrated and customer friendly services.


One-Stop Career Centers offer a wide range of tools to help people find a new job or career. Our career counselors keep in touch with employers throughout the state, and they frequently post new job opportunities. Job seekers are automatically cross-matched to openings in their desired field or occupation when they register.


Workforce information, job listings, training providers, career advice and a computer system to match job seekers' skills and aptitudes with current job openings, training programs (including skills and basic education classes in public or private vocational and trade schools), and on-the-job training and apprenticeships in many fields- these examples are a sampling of job-search tools available to you. In our reemployment workshops, job seekers learn how to look for a job, what to do at an interview and how to conduct an effective job search.


Help yourself at our free self-help public access areas. Use our phones, fax machines, photocopiers and personal computers to conduct your job search. You can scan job openings and find all kinds of information about occupations in demand, job fairs, training, particular companies, the labor market, transportation and housing, child care services, and lots more. Assistance with the equipment is always available. All of these services are available free of charge to help New Jersey's workers build the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century work environment.
