What Is The Jobs Administration?

The JOBS Administration is an employment and training program designed to assist public assistance recipients. It administers the JOBS Program and the Food Stamp Employment and Training Program.

The JOBS Administration will assist participants in moving from public assistance to employment through: employment services for those who are job ready or need help preparing for work and finding a job; support services for those who need help with child care, transportation cost, etc; training, work experience, and education for those who need to learn new skills, improve the skills they have or build a work record.

The participant and the JOBS Case Manager develop an Employability Plan. The Employability Plan establishes realistic employment goals and activities. The JOBS Case Manager will assist participants to meet their goals by arranging for needed services, referring to job openings and monitoring the participant's progress.
