The Workforce Development Division of the Office of Economic and 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.

 

Access Points

The Access Points are intended to provide a robust network of workforce services for San Francisco residents. 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 job seekers with finding employment as quickly as possible.

Re-entry Navigator

The Re-entry Navigator assists Access Point clients with criminal backgrounds to address challenges of balancing returning home and preparing to re-enter the workforce. The Re-entry Navigator provides guidance and resources to Access Point staff and employers on how to maximize the opportunities of working with re-entry individuals.
 

Services for Individuals with Disabilities

The Access Points are 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 an Access Point nearest to you.


Resources & Referrals

The Access Points 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 families. 


Layoff Assistance

San Franciscans that have been recently laid off or have received a notice of termination can find layoff assistance through our Job Transition Assistance Services program. 
  

HireSF

HireSF.org allows job seekers online access to workforce services such as career interest assessments, education and training information, and basic career search assistance. Job seekers may also view and apply for non-construction First Source opportunities and identify themselves as being enrolled in WIA.

 

Construction Employment Services

Employment Networking Services is provided in apprentice and journey level construction positions through CityBuild. These employment opportunities encompass all trades for San Francisco job seekers. Orientations for job seekers are held on the second and fourth Thursday of the month at the 3120 Mission Street Career Link Center.
