L.A. County has officially launched its first Job Board Job Simulator in its new $3.7 billion downtown L.E.D. facility.
The job board, which allows job seekers to search for job openings and apply for positions, was first implemented in the city in 2019.
A similar program, Job Scout, was rolled out to the entire county in 2019 as well.
Job Board is the county’s first job board program, which is a service that allows jobseekers to search job openings on the Job Board, which was announced by Mayor Eric Garcetti during the L.C. Super Bowl celebration in 2020.
The county launched the Job board program last year to help the county workforce transition from a job market that is mostly full and the need to hire from outside the county, said Los Angeles County Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky.
The county is one of just a handful of cities in the country that have a Job Board program, according to Yaroslavky.
L.L.A.’s Job Board also works with job boards and other government agencies across the state to help them meet the needs of the county and its workforce.
The program has been featured in several TV, radio, and newspaper articles.
Job board positions are open to all people in the LAC and eligible to apply for one.
Job board candidates must have a bachelor’s degree, or have an advanced degree in an arts or sciences, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) field.
The Job Board Program is designed to give Job Seekers an immediate and reliable means of hiring for jobs, while allowing them to meet other county requirements, Yaroslavsk said.
The Job Board has already been utilized by the County of Los Angeles and several other cities across the country, Yarsovak said.
Job seekers must be able to demonstrate they can complete a minimum of 40 hours of work per week, and must be a U.S. citizen, according the JobBoard website.
Job Board is available to L.O.D., a public transportation agency, which also has a JobBoard program, but it is open to the public.
