Welcome to the San Diego Workforce Partnership

What we do for work is much more than simply a job, or a career path. Our work is central to who we are, what we value, and what we choose to do with our lives. The world is rapidly changing. Thousands of jobs that are in demand today did not exist a few years ago. What will the future workforce look like? Which jobs will disappear, which will emerge? This can be both daunting and exhilarating. How do we prepare ourselves to be in-demand? We all need to be thinking about these questions and more. Do we need to acquire new skills? Am I doing what align with my strengths, interests, and values? The San Diego Workforce Partnership is here to help you ask these questions and to seek solutions. Our focus is to support everyone on their career journey to know which jobs are out there and how to acquire the skills and experience needed to achieve career goals. Our careers are a choice. We are here to help. Let us know how we can support you in your journey.
