The City of Los Angeles has a robust workforce development system designed to create a skilled labor force and a successful business environment for both small companies and large corporations. Managed by the Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD), there are several centers located across LA City that focus specifically on businesses, youth and adult job seekers.

The City of LA offers services to business owners and developers either directly or through our network of service provider agencies. The WDB strives to improve the economic climate of Los Angeles through the provision of financing, technical assistance, training, business tax incentives, and workforce programs. These services help local businesses grow, provide living wage jobs for workers and high quality goods and services to under-served communities.

WorkSource Centers have helped over 120,000 job seekers find work. More than 1,000 LA area businesses annually list job openings with us looking for employees like you. Job openings range from manufacturing and industrial positions to childcare and highly specialized healthcare workers to international export experts. Jumpstart your job search today.

The process of transitioning from the military into the public workforce can be a struggle for veterans. EWDD can make the experience easier for service members, veterans, and first responders. Let us help you return to the workforce faster.

YouthSource Centers help young adults into full-time or summer employment programs, provide training and career guidance, as well as assistance with education. For example, a local high school dropout came to a YouthSource center, earned his way to an internship with a film production company, and now has a successful career.
