NOVA is a nonprofit, federally funded employment and training agency that provides customer-focused workforce development services. We provide individualized career counseling, workshops, resume assistance, interview preparation, job search support, and other resources to support individuals seeking immediate employment. We measure our success in job placement and we are invested in helping you achieve your career goals. All services are open to students and community members at no cost.

If you are interested in NOVA services, you can sign up for a registration session at any of the SparkPoint Center offices, call (650) 738-7904, or email us at Registration sessions are held every Tuesday from 1:30 to 3:30pm and includes information on how to enroll in NOVA services. We may be able to take walk-ins for registration sessions, but you are strongly encouraged to register in advance. If you cannot make this time for extenuating circumstances, we will make every attempt to accommodate your schedule.

  • (if male) Selective Service registration documentation. If you are over 26 years of age and have not registered, please bring documentation demonstrating the circumstances that prevented you from doing so such as entering the US past age 26, veteran status, or proof of incarceration.

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.
