Through CalJOBS,, the EDD Job Service offers an Internet-based network that links employers with job seekers in California and nationwide.

EDD Job Service’s primary mission of meeting employers’ workforce needs is largely accomplished through CalJOBS. Job Service also provides employers with other services to meet workforce needs:

  • Re-employment services for dislocated workers.
  • Labor market information for planning business expansion, relocation, and future hiring. 
  • Focused recruitment for new business ventures or facilities needing a large number of specialized workers in a hurry. 
  • Coordinated workforce preparation services in partnership with local employment and training agencies.

Listing Job Openings

California employers with Internet access can enter their job listings directly into the CalJOBSSM website; otherwise, job announcements can be phoned or faxed in to an EDD Job Service location. Job Service staff at locations closest to the work site will be familiar with local economic conditions.

Employers can have their jobs listed publicly, enabling qualified job seekers to view the job information and apply directly to the company. Employers may also request EDD’s assistance in screening suitable employees from the CalJOBS database.
