Human Resource Support

Wouldn’t it be better if, as an employer, you could receive assistance with some of the tasks associated with a job recruitment effort, such as preparing job descriptions and job postings?  What if you didn’t have to prescreen prospective employees? Wouldn’t that be helpful?

These and other workforce services are available to businesses located in Monterey County.

Business Services staff with the Monterey County Workforce Development Board can meet with you to discuss what services are available to you and how we can be of assistance – all at no cost to you!
