Job Center System

The Workforce Development Board of South Central Wisconsin works to develop our region’s Job Centers by providing both financial and technical support. The Board and partners assure access to a broad array of workforce and economic development resources and services through a combination of Job Centers and Interactive Television (ITV) service sites that are strategically aligned to serve workers and communities across the region. The South Central Wisconsin Job Centers serve both job seekers and businesses within the Wisconsin counties of Columbia, Dane, Dodge, Jefferson, Marquette, and Sauk.

Serving Our Communities

The South Central Wisconsin Job Center System is a partnership of government agencies and community-based organizations with a common goal: to make our community a better place to live by improving job opportunities through economic support, training and education. Job Center locations are home to several government and community agencies that can help you access both career and non-career related services. These Centers provide access to critical job and skill development services and resources, as well as business services that are vital to the social and economic well-being of our communities through partnerships with other local, state, and federal agencies, education and economic development organizations. While all agencies may not have staff or services at every location, staff can help you get in touch with someone best able to meet your needs.
