Looking for a Job? Let CareerOneStop Be Your Guide!

While some people take the summer to vacation or take a break from their work-life, others may be actively hitting the job market. Many U.S. citizens find that the summer is an ideal time to look for a job, change their current career, or look for temporary part-time work. Students and teachers are often looking for opportunities near the end of May or June once school is out. Veterans coming back from deployment, citizens with disabilities, and many others also often use this time to find new work.

This site provides resources to help citizens change their career, find benefits, and seek employment advice. Below is a list of those specific resources available to varying jobseekers in need:
