WorkSource Oregon Centers
Oregon Dislocated Worker Services begin with registering with WorkSource Oregon. You can register at the nearest WorkSource Oregon Center location or Register Online.
Once registered, you will need to come into a WorkSource Oregon Center location for a conversation with staff on your next step. This is an important part of our process and must be in person. Staff will want to know more about how we can best help you. Do you have skills and want to connect with programs and services that can help you find a job? Do you need to increase your skills or explore education and training options? Be prepared to let us know how we can help.
During your conversation, WorkSource Oregon staff will determine if you are eligible as a dislocated worker and how best to meet your needs using all WorkSource Oregon programs and services available to you.
Together we will determine which options best fit your needs and plan for your next step. We invite you back as many times as you need to connect with WorkSource Oregon programs and services, and wish you success in finding employment.
WorkSource Oregon staff will assist dislocated workers with all available programs and services at WorkSource Oregon Centers. For additional dislocated worker questions, please ask for your Local Dislocated Worker Liaison or call 1–800–282–6514 to be directed to the best local resources to meet your needs.
