What kind of places are you thinking of? Government agencies? Recruiters? Nonprofit groups?’
The question for today is, “Are there places in every state to help you find the job?”
It depends on what you mean by the word, “places.” After all, I’m sure there are recruiters in every state that will help you find the job. There are people that will help you find a job. If you mean government agencies, which is what I suspect you are asking about, yes, I’m sure there are agencies that do occupational training and, perhaps, an Office of Employment and Training that will help you find work. It used to be called Unemployment. These agencies will “help you find a job.”
What did they really do? They will point you to a computer, tell you to do a search on their website and other websites to identify positions.
Do you think that’s the way that’s the way to help you find the job?
They may have pamphlets and other material for you to read (and probably not follow through on) that are designed to help you find the job, but are basic.
If you are the beginner level in your job search, you may need that kind of material to help you find work.
If you are a more experienced person, respectfully, , what I have seen of the information that is provided won’t be good enough to help you. Certainly, they are not going to go out and “find jobs for you.” Their job is to process people, not help you find the job.
Thus, the answer the question is, “it depends.” For most individuals, it is very basic stuff that won’t help you very much.
What you need to do take charge of your career, learn what you need to in order to find work now and in the future, and think of your career as a business that you own, not a him bdicated 2 other people.
It’s kind of like investing in mutual funds – – you handle your money to other people who you think no better, but do they really? Or a financial adviser? Do you think some of them really know better?
At the end of the day, you may not get a lot out of these Office of Training facilities and other places that the government has set up. You will get some amount of advice from recruiting firms. You can find people who can help you. There are nonprofit groups that can help. But you need to be in charge of your career,

You already know you can’t trust recruiters—they tell you as much as they think you need to know to take the job they after representing so they collect their payday.
The skills needed to find a job are different yet complement the skills needed to do a job.
