American Job Centers (AJCs) provide free help to job seekers for a variety of career and employment related needs. AJCs have experienced career counselors on staff that work with job seekers to identify their interests, assess their skills and abilities and advise them on in-demand jobs and potential training opportunities. They will assist job seekers with building a resume and job search.
