What services available to help get me back to work?

unemployed_personQ: What services may be available to help get me back to work?

A: There are three types of services that are potentially available to you at no cost:
All workers have access to core services like those listed below through a local One-Stop Career Center. You may have received information on these services through your Rapid Response team if you were part of a larger layoff. This is the first step in obtaining information such as:
Unemployment Insurance
Pension Benefits & Health Insurance Coverage
Job Search Assistance
Job Referral
Local Area Job Openings
Resume Assistance
Job Training

If the core services do not produce results, you may be eligible for one-on-one assistance, group career workshops, and other assistance such as:
Assessment of your Skills and Abilities
Resume Writing Classes
Help in Planning how to get back to work
Stress and Financial Management Workshops
One-on-One Job Counseling

Training Services, like those listed below, may be available to help you get a good job. If you qualify for help you will have access to a broad range of training services. Your One-Stop Career Center will have a list of training programs, descriptions and costs to help guide you in the decision-making process.
Occupational Skills Training
On-the-Job Training
Skills Improvement
GED Preparation
English as a Second Language (ESL)
Math and Reading Training

Your local One-Stop Career Center can help you identify sources of financial assistance to help pay for training.
Some services for dislocated workers have eligibility requirements. Please check with your State Dislocated Worker/Rapid Response Team or One-Stop Career Center for details.

  1. I was filing again and am still in my year window which expires 6/24/17.
    I received Unemployment benefits from about First week of July till 12/31/16. At that time I contacted the EDD Unemp. office and asked when or if I can apply again and I was told 5 days before or up to the day before 6/24/17 to gain unemployment again.
    I did on 6/20/17 and was interrogated by a woman drill instructor who was extremely RUDE in her questioning as she would not even give me the consideration to listed to me.
    I called the Unemployment office in Mission Viejo and requested the person there to please call me (2x) no response as of 6/21/17.I am going over to that office at about 10:30 am 6/21/17.
    I was previously told that EDD would reapply and start at the point where I last worked and review my pay which was increased fro the amount used in 2016′ unemployment figure and my hours which were almost full time when I was laid off at Sports Chalet, when they closed all their stores In California. The drill instructor turned me down after 2 other EDD people said I was still able to get benefits. I was told “just appeal”!
