Connecting Talent and Skill with Alabama Opportunities

Alabama is the place for those who truly love what they do and a great place to build a career. The Alabama Department of Labor is ready to support you all the way. We serve as the connection point for workers seeking to find a job or advance their careers or employers who want to provide on-the-job training for their employees.

At no cost to you, we actively assist by providing training and education to help prepare Alabama residents for that next job or career step. We help make the workplace more rewarding by putting you to work in a position where you are qualified with the goal of connecting you to a high demand and high pay job opportunity.

A Positive Vision for a Shared Future

We want to serve you as a technologically sound, cohesive hub of assistance provided by our local employment guides. These guides will provide you with the most relevant and dependable services, so that you can come to us at different stages in your career and point to the same uplifting experience each time.

Our guides get to understand your needs and provide empathy, care, and personal attention. We accommodate your present life experiences, matching your qualifications to the best possible fit for a bright future. The result: a job or career that will make you a good living and, just as important, make you proud to work in Alabama.
