Meeting California's Changing Needs

California's Employment Development Department's (EDD) Job Service has a primary mandate to facilitate the match between employers and qualified workers.

While continuing its traditional function as the state's labor exchange, EDD's approach is geared to meet the challenges of the 21st century with increased efficiency and continuously improved customer service. CalJOBSSM plays a vital role in meeting that challenge.
