Frequently Asked Questions

Individuals enroll in the Employment program in order to receive job search services and assistance.  Process starts with an enrollment to assess employment needs and interests rather than an instant appointment to work on a resume or cover letter.


Employment specialists can work with individuals outside our service area, but people must be able to meet at a Hopelink center or nearby public place. Click here to find your nearest center.


An employment specialist can serve an important role in assessing self-employment possibilities and pitfalls but cannot help someone start a business.  For other self-employment resources, see Job Seeker Services at Worksource for free workshops and resources.  If interested in self-employment as a driver of your own vehicle, see www.uber.com, www.lyft.com, or do a Google search “self-employed driving own vehicle” for delivery and courier jobs.
