Job Search Assistance is implemented though the Workforce Center’s Intensive Supportive Services which encompasses a range of assistance that is designed to improve your job search and position you for success. To maximize your full potential, you are assigned a one on one Workforce Development Specialist to coach and strategize opportunities by attending “free” workshops, participating in cover letter and resume instructing and mock interviews until you are gainfully employed.

Funding is limited and you must meet eligibility requirements. For more info, click on the green link above.


 A Dislocated Worker is a person who lost his/her job through no fault of their own. Funds for training through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Dislocated Worker program are limited. You must meet eligibility requirements. For more info, click the green link above.

Regular Approved Training is a status available to Unemployment Insurance (UI) and Extended Unemployment Compensation (EUC) claimants who are attending a training program. This status allows a person’s job contacts to be waived while they are attending training without disqualifying them from receiving benefits. Click on the green link above for more information.

The Pikes Peak Workforce Center is bringing employers and job seekers together to participate in an On-the-Job Training (OJT) Program. OJTs help job seekers bridge the gap between their current skills and the skills employers are seeking. It gives job seekers the opportunity to improve and/or gain new skills while being employed and earning a regular paycheck. Qualified job seekers for this program must be unemployed for at least 19 weeks. For more information, click on the green link above.

 Are you newly unemployed, laid off through no fault of your own? Filed for or receiving unemployment benefits? If eligible, you may qualify for services that could help you return to work more rapidly. For more information, click on the green link above.
