The Job Development Center is the unit of the Commission
devoted to assisting residents of the County to find
employment. It is the aim of the Job Development
Center to assist all residents, with emphasis on
minority group members, in achieving this goal. The
Center also refers applicants to job training, alerts
the community to upcoming Civil Service examinations
and County job opportunities. The Job Development
Center cooperates with the Office of Women's Services,
CASA, and the Office of Veteran's Affairs in providing
services to County residents.
It has been found that equal and meaningful employment
opportunity is beneficial to the entire community.
The employer gains a worker geared to their needs
and willing to stay on the job because opportunities
are truly open to the employee. The community benefits
from the stabilizing effects of gainfully employed
citizens and an increased tax base. The Center seeks
to ensure the continued cooperation of labor, industry
and other interested parties in providing the community
with meaningful, open-ended job opportunities.
