Serving Our Communities
The West Central Wisconsin Job Center System is a partnership of government agencies and community-based organizations with a common goal: to make our community a better place to live by improving job opportunities through economic support, training and education. Job Center locations are home to several government and community agencies that can help you access both career and non-career related services. These Centers provide access to critical job and skill development services and resources, as well as business services that are vital to the social and economic well-being of our communities through partnerships with other local, state, and federal agencies, education and economic development organizations. While all agencies may not have staff or services at every location, staff can help you get in touch with someone best able to meet your needs.
American Job Centers are designed to provide a full range of assistance to job seekers under one roof. Established under the Workforce Investment Act, and reauthorized in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act of 2014, the centers offer training referrals, career counseling, job listings, and similar employment-related services. Customers can visit a center in person or connect to the center’s information online.
