About Us

Welcome! The Ozark Region Missouri Career Center is a full service One-Stop Center for your employment and re-employment needs. We are part of the Ozark Region Workforce Investment Board. The Ozark Region is comprised of Polk, Dallas, Greene, Webster, Christian, Stone and Taney counties in Southwest Missouri.

With locations in both Springfield and Branson, Missouri our Centers provide an array of services to our customers, both job seekers and businesses. We fully understand that there is a need in our communities to provide a Center in which our customers come to get questions answered. Whether you need to look for work or find employees, we have a network of partners that will facilitate the process and answer your questions.

We also have access points through the ShareNetwork at the Marshfield and Seymour public libraries and the Christian Associates of Table Rock Lake in Kimberling City, where we have provided computers to access both the GreatHires database of jobs as well as the ShareNetwork for supportive services through faith-based and community organizations.

We can assist job seekers with job search, labor market trends, direct placement, job clubs, and various types of training. Not to mention, we have a variety of partners that offer additional intensive programs and services. Whether you are self-sufficient or require intensive services, we are here to assist.

For our business customers, whether you need qualified job seekers, tax credits, or a location to host a targeted recruitment event, we are also here to assist. Please see our menu across the top of this web site for more information on services to both job seekers and employers. We are continually changing and offering new services to both constituents, so check back often to see what new and exciting opportunities we and our partners can offer you.
