There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Peggy, a "Boomer" (age 45+), left her company to relocate to Tennessee.  Unfortunately, the job market in Tennessee was not what she expected and Peggy returned to Colorado.  Between the time she had left Colorado and her return, the company where she previously worked was sold so she was unable to return to her previous job.  Peggy soon found it very difficult to search for a job in this economy where so many people were competing for every job.

Peggy had visited the Jefferson County Workforce Center in the past and knew she would return to conduct her new job search.  She visited the workforce center DAILY, for 5 months straight, attending various workshops.  Peggy was then enrolled in the Workforce Investment Act Program.  Staff at the Workforce Center found Peggy a Work Training Experience (WTE) with Jefferson County giving her an opportunity to learn new skills and thrive in a new environment. 

Soon, word got out at what a wonderful employee she was and that she would make an excellent addition to the Jefferson County Attorney's Office in Administration.  She was immediately hired as an Intern and rumor has it there may be something more permanent around the corner. 

Peggy is extremely pleased with the One Stop Workforce Center and its staff and has recommended the center to several of her friends.
