Where to Apply

How Do I Apply?

In order to apply for the Targeted Local Hire (TLH) Program and/or the Bridge to Jobs (BRIDGE) 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 Program Orientation & Application Session at an approved Application Site to submit your TLH and/or BRIDGE Program application.


*Please Note: If applying to BRIDGE, make sure to bring proof of a High School Diploma or equivalent, or approved certification to your Program Orientation & Application Session. If you do not have one of these, you may still apply to the program by electing to take the CASAS test or the City’s Aptitude test, which you can select on your application. You will then be emailed further details on how to schedule yourself to take either exam.


Where Do I Start?

Contact a Referral Agency and indicate you are interested in applying for the Targeted Local Hire Program and/or the Bridge to Jobs 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 Targeted Local Hire Program and the Bridge to Jobs 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 Orientation & Application Sessions. During these sessions, candidates will receive an orientation about both Programs before sitting in a computer room to submit a Program Application online. All sessions are by appointment only once a candidate submits a properly completed Agency Referral Form. All Application Sites are also Referral Agencies.
