The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) is made up of several agencies that promote good jobs for all Americans through effective employment policies, career exploration and job training programs.
The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), one of those agencies, develops policies to increase employment opportunities for people with disabilities. ODEP also runs several initiatives, including the Workforce Recruitment Program, which connects both federal and private-sector employers with highly motivated college students and recent graduates with disabilities.
The Employment and Training Administration’s CareerOneStop website offers a broad range of job training, career exploration and job search resources. DOL’s Women’s Bureau Working Women's Clearinghouse offers many helpful resources specifically for women seeking employment or job training opportunities. The department’s Veterans' Employment and Training Service supports America's veterans and service members by preparing them for meaningful careers and providing comprehensive employment resources.
