The American Job Center Network is a unifying name and brand that identifies online and in-person workforce development services as part of a single network. We request that states and local areas use the toolkit on this web page to proactively identify One-Stop Career Centers as "American Job Centers" in outreach materials, websites, and other communications. The toolkit can be used as an easy way for jobseekers and employers to locate, recognize and access workforce development services, and are appropriate for physical One-Stop Career Centers or websites. The Department announced the American Job Center brand in Training and Employment Guidance Letter No. 36-11, available at http://wdr.doleta.gov/directives/corr_doc.cfm?DOCN=7695.
The U.S. Department of Labor Employment and Training Administration (ETA), in coordination with the Department of Education, has established the American Job Center network, a unifying name and brand that identifies online and in-person workforce development services as part of a single network. In connection with this activity, ETA established trademark ownership of the following logos: 1) “American Job Center network”; and 2) “a proud partner of the American Job Center network” (“Logos”) for use in the public workforce system.
WIOA sec. 121(e)(4) requires each one-stop delivery system to include in the identification of products, programs, activities, services, facilities, and related property and materials, a common one-stop delivery system identifier, in addition to using any State- or locally-developed identifier.
The timeframe for adopting the required rebranding varies depending on the type of material. The Final Rule at 20 CFR § 678.900(b) requires that, “As of November 17, 2016, each one-stop delivery system must include the ‘American Job Center’ identifier or ‘a proud partner of the American Job Center network’ on all primary electronic resources used by the one-stop delivery system, and on any newly printed, purchased, or created materials.” The Final Rule at 20 CFR § 678.900(c) further requires that “As of July 1, 2017, each one-stop delivery system must include the ‘American Job Center’ identifier or ‘a proud partner of the American Job Center network’ on all products, programs, activities, services, electronic resources, facilities, and related property and new materials used in the one-stop delivery system.” Finally, as the Departments of Labor and Education stated in the Preamble to the Final Rule, “[T]he Departments will not object if the one-stop centers continue to use materials not using the ‘American Job Center’ branding which are created before November 17, 2016 until those supplies are exhausted.”
