The Prescreen is Your First Interview
Many of our job openings direct job seekers to have a JTC staff person “prescreen” them after completing the application. This prescreen is your first interview and should be approached just like a real interview. Before asking for the prescreen, consider whether or not you are dressed and ready for an interview.

What is Labor Market Information (LMI)?
Labor Market Information or LMI is detailed information about wages, occupations, training, and trends for the city or region where you’d like to live and work. It is a comprehensive collection of data that tells you what industries are growing, what occupations pay the highest wages, detailed job descriptions, and more. This information is at your fingertips through the Employment Development Department’s Labor Market Information Divison.
