Workforce Snohomish County

Since its inception, Workforce Snohomish has underpinned the county’s economic foundation by strengthening local businesses, supporting workers, and assisting unemployed residents to find gainful employment. We ensure people have the opportunity to thrive and engage in a vibrant community.

As one of the 12 Workforce Development Councils in Washington State, Workforce Snohomish receives federal and private funding to oversee and operate the two WorkSource Centers in the county, located in Everett and Lynnwood. The WorkSource Centers are part of the nationwide American Job Center system offering free services such as: unemployment insurance information; employment related workshops; job fairs and on-site recruiting events; and links to educational and training opportunities. Workforce Snohomish continually seeks out partners to provide services in the WorkSource Centers, ensuring the most comprehensive system possible for county residents. 

Recognizing that individuals with barriers often need more in-depth support than can be offered at the WorkSource Centers, Workforce Snohomish has developed and implemented direct employment programs to assist those with challenges become financially independent.
