JobsNOW! JobsNOW! for Job Seekers

JobsNOW! helps San Francisco residents get back to work, regardless of their work experience.
Our free program helps you find, apply, and train for a new job.

We’ve expanded JobsNOW! to help more people get back to work by providing access to hundreds of employers and job opportunities. We’ll help match you with the right position and help you stand out from other applicants—or give you a program voucher that allows you to find your own job. This means that the City will pay employers for up to 100% of your wages for three months if they hire you. Act now to take advantage of these expanded opportunities!

JobsNOW! is here for you when you need it. You are eligible for JobsNOW! if you:

  • Live in San Francisco
  • Are authorized to work in the U.S.
  • Are at least 18 years of age or older
  • Meet certain income requirements or receive public benefits through SFHSA

Whether you are eligible depends on your income and household size. You are eligible if you make less than $38,640 per year for single adults or $79,500 for a family of four. Or, you are eligible if you already receive other SFHSA benefits, including CalWORKs, CalFresh, Medi-Cal, cash assistance, or are a former foster youth.

Please note: Unemployment Insurance benefits and economic stimulus pay do NOT count towards your income and will not impact your JobsNOW! eligibility.

If you’re ready to find a job or need help to prepare, our free program offers over-the-phone and web services that include:

  • Connecting you to employers for part-time and full-time positions
  • Help with resumes, job applications, and interviewing skills
