Job Seekers

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) establishes two levels of employment and training services for Adults and Dislocated Workers: Career Services and Training Services. Job Seekers who seek tools or resources related to Career or Training Services or referrals to many SLOCal Careers partner agencies may find this section useful.

Individualized Career Services

These services are designed to meet the unique needs of the Customer. These services include comprehensive and specialized assessments, case management, individual employment plans, career planning, and vocational counseling.

Training Services

Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) are for individual job seekers who need occupational skills training in order to successfully reenter the workforce. Training providers are available in the State's Eligible Training Provider list. 

On-the-Job Training (OJT) is another training opportunity that provides work-based learning rather than classroom instruction. The intention of an OJT agreement is to benefit both the employer and the customer by bridging the gap between a worker's current skills and the skills employers are looking for and providing reimbursement to the employer for the costs associated with training the OJT trainee and promoting good-paying jobs. 

Program Eligibility

To receive services through the Adult and Dislocated Worker Program, you must meet eligibility requirements that include:

  • Proof of authorization to work in the United States
  • Proof of Selective Service registration, if applicable
  • Proof of age
  • Veteran and/or covered spouse status for veterans' priority, if applicable
  • General Self-sufficiency Requirements
  • Proof of San Luis Obispo County residency
