How to Access Services
1. The first step in the process to become a NOVA Job Center member is to attend the Power Up Your Job Search and Registration session
To sign up for the next available session, please visit www.novaworks.org, call (408) 730-7232, or email us at email@example.com. Plan to arrive 20 minutes prior to the start time to complete paperwork. Late arrivals will be scheduled for a later date.
Because NOVA is a federally funded program, we must establish proof of eligibility and of right to work prior to providing you with services. Required documentation will vary dependent upon your circumstances, but common documents include driver license, Social Security card, U.S. passport, or Permanent Resident card.
Please bring additional documentation if the following situations apply to you:
- If you were laid off from your job, documentation of your last day worked and eligibility for Unemployment Insurance.
- If you are a veteran, your DD214
2. Once your registration paperwork is complete, you will meet with a career advisor to begin developing your customized job-search plan. Career advisors can assist you with wherever you are in your job search—whether it is the process of determining your career goal, developing an effective resume, using social media in your job search, strategies for accessing both visible and hidden job leads, targeting companies, preparing for interviews, or negotiating offers.
We hope to see you soon!
