What is a One-Stop Career Center?
A One-Stop Career Center, or One-Stop Workforce Center, is a location where a wide range of employment, training, and career education program services are available to employers, workers, job seekers and youth.
One-Stop Workforce Centers leverage public workforce dollars with other state and local funding; business resources; and foundation support to provide career development services for local workers and deliver workforce solutions to local employers.
OppInc. One-Stop Workforce Centers offer a comprehensive range of services to help you find a job. Services provided through the Workforce Centers are funded through the U.S. Department of Labor so there's never a charge, although eligibility may apply for certain services. OppInc One-Stop Workforce Centers are members of the Virginia Workforce Network. Who is Eligible to Receive Services?
Employers, workers and job seekers are customers of the one-stop career center. This includes businesses and industries, students, people with disabilities, veterans, TANF recipients, migrant and seasonal farm workers, unemployed, underemployed and employed individuals. Everyone can access the services of the Center free of charge.
For the worker or job seeker, there are three levels of services available through the Center and customers can move from one level to the next or receive services from more than one level, depending on their needs. The first level is core services, usually self-directed in nature, and available to everyone without any eligibility requirements.

A SHARE Network Access Point, "SNAP", is a faith-based or community organization where people can go in their own neighborhoods or communities to look for jobs, assisted by trained individuals who connect them to the regional One-Stop system via computer and direct referrals. Specifically, SNAPS provide core services for self-directed job searches; refer customers to the One-Stop and supportive services as needed; publicize job search services in their communities and offer additional services as extra, in-kind support to job seekers.
