WorkSource provides no-cost employment and training services to help employers find the workers they need and individuals find the jobs they want.

Services for business include candidate recruiting and screening, job fairs and hiring events, training and skills acquisition for existing workers, labor market data and engagement and development opportunities with youth workers.
