Workforce Development

The Vermont Department of Labor's mission is to promote Vermont's economic strength by assisting employers with job creation, retention and recruitment; coordinating the education and training of our workforce for Vermont's current and future job opportunities; ensuring that Vermont workers have well-paying jobs in safe work environments; administering economic support and reemployment assistance to workers who suffer a job loss or workplace injury; and providing labor market information and analysis to enable effective planning and decision-making relating to economic, education, labor and employment policies and direction.

The Workforce Development Division operates 12 regional offices across the state. These offices are known as Career Resource Centers (CRC), and more information about each center is listed below. The Department's Burlington office is the State's federally-recognized One-Stop Job Center. This Job Center, which is operated by the Vermont Department of Labor, is part of the American Job Center Network through the U.S. Department of Labor.

American Job Centers are designed to provide a full range of assistance to job seekers under one roof. Established under the Workforce Investment Act, and reauthorized in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunities Act of 2014, the centers offer training referrals, career counseling, job listings, and similar employment-related services. Customers can visit a center in person or connect to the center's information online or through kiosk remote access. More information can be found at www.careeronestop.org.
