Where to Apply

How Do I Apply?

In order to apply to the LA Local Hire Program, you will need to complete the following steps:

  1. Schedule a job readiness assessment AND be deemed job ready by an approved Referral Agency; and
  2. If you are deemed job ready, receive a Referral Form signed by the Referral Agency; and
  3. Schedule and attend a LA Local Hire Program Orientation & Application Session at an approved Application Site to submit your TLH and/or BRIDGE Program application(s).

*For more information on what is required to be deemed job ready, please see the Job Readiness Assessment Tool.

*If deemed not job ready, candidates have two options: 1) Enroll with an Application Site to obtain additional supportive services in order to become job ready, or 2) Seek additional supportive services in order to become job ready.


Where Do I Start?

Contact a Referral Agency and indicate you are interested in applying for the LA Local Hire Program. The Referral Agency will set up an appointment with you to start the process, or help you find appropriate services. Note that certain agencies may have qualifying or eligibility criteria before they are able to provide services.

REFERRAL AGENCY

Referral Agencies that are signed on with the LA Local Hire Program are:

See map at the bottom of this page to identify an organization near you.

If the Referral Agency determines you are job ready, they will sign an Agency Referral Form on your behalf. You will need this to schedule an appointment at an Application Site (where you will submit the actual Program Application)

APPLICATION SITE

Application Sites conduct LA Local Hire Orientation & Application Sessions. During these sessions, candidates will receive an orientation about both the Targeted Local Hire and Bridge to Jobs Programs before sitting in a computer room to submit Program Application(s) online. All sessions are by appointment only once a candidate submits a properly completed Agency Referral Form. All Application Sites are also Referral Agencies.
