The American Job Center (AJC) is reaching out in an effort to support Tennessee’s citizens affected by COVID-19.  The state has provided the American Job Centers with funding established through the Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act).   The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development has indicated if you are permanently laid off from your last employer, currently receiving unemployment benefits, and job searching; you may be eligible for assistance.  To discuss all of the services available, please call the nearest American Job Center per the location list below and ask to speak with a Career Specialist.  AJC staff will explain all choices including training opportunities, referrals for employment and many other options and partner services.  If needed, you can schedule an appointment to meet in person. 

We are currently partnering with local training providers to offer many types of training programs as a part of this grant.  Some training could begin immediately or in the next few days or weeks as some of the opportunities will be limited in space and duration.  All short-term training opportunities will occur in November and December and must be completed before December 30, 2020. If you are interested in short-term training, click on the training program below to review the flyer then contact staff to go over the program details with you, let staff know your choice of training to begin the registration process.


We have also partnered with many employers in our area that are hiring qualified individuals.  If you are interested in employment opportunities, you will be referred to open job orders for employment consideration. The intent of this project is to provide opportunities to lessen the duration you are on unemployment.   AJC staff will make every effort to help you secure employment or and obtain upskill training that will lead to future employment. 

Please contact the nearest AJC office as soon as possible to discuss services.
