The American Job Center Network is a unifying name and brand that identifies online and in-person workforce development services as part of a single network. We request that states and local areas use the toolkit on this web page to proactively identify One-Stop Career Centers as "American Job Centers" in outreach materials, websites, and other communications. The toolkit can be used as an easy way for jobseekers and employers to locate, recognize and access workforce development services, and are appropriate for physical One-Stop Career Centers or websites. The Department announced the American Job Center brand in Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 36-11, available at

Benefits and Uses

The Department of Labor already hosts several powerful online tools to help jobseekers, including skill transferability tools, career exploration tools, skill assessments, credential listings, and job openings, but they are not all easy to find. A new, integrated online American Job Center Web site at provides a single online point of access to resources, improved navigation, and greater name recognition, all oriented around the needs of an individual or a business. This online tool will mean 24-7 access to key information that will help individuals find jobs, identify training programs, and tap into resources that will help them gain skills in critical
and growth industries. The President’s Budget requests funds to further upgrade the online American Job Center Web site’s functionality with convenient, personalized virtual services, greater interactivity, and real-time communication.
