||The Workforce Development Division of the Office of Economic & Workforce Development (OEWD) is committed to providing workforce services that will promote sustainable prosperity for San Francisco’s diverse population of workers. OEWD strives to ensure that San Francisco has a qualified workforce that attracts, retains and expands industries and enhances the quality of life in the City.
To that end the Workforce Development Division has developed several strategies and initiatives that align with our mission to strengthen and increase the competitiveness and vitality of San Francisco’s workforce.
The One Stop Career Link Center System is intended to provide a seamless array of workforce services for San Francisco residents. Such services include career planning, job search assistance, and retention services in order to enhance the skills and aptitudes of San Francisco’s workforce and to assist them with finding employment as quickly as possible.
The Re-Entry Program Navigator assists One Stop Career Link Center Customers, with criminal backgrounds, to “Navigate” through the challenges of balancing returning home and preparing to re-enter the workforce. The Re- Entry Navigator provides guidance and resources to One Stop Career Link Center Staff and employers on how to maximize the opportunities of working with Re-Entry individuals.
The One Stop Career Link System is now equipped with assistive technology. Assistive technology is technology used by individuals with disabilities in order to perform functions that might otherwise be difficult or impossible as they conduct their job search. Find out what assistive technology is available at the One Stop Career Link Center nearest you.
The One Stop Career Link Centers work in partnership with State, Local and Community Based Organizations to provide a comprehensive set of services to its clients. These partnering organizations provide services that range from Child Support Services to Services for Veterans and their spouses.

Job placement is provided in the both apprentice and journey level construction positions through our CityBuild program. These employment opportunities encompass all trades for San Francisco job seekers.
