The Los Angeles Economic and Workforce Development Department (EWDD) recently announced a major revamp of its website that makes it easier for Angelenos to quickly locate and access the services they need—from finding a job and taking out a small business loan to learning about the latest contracting and development opportunities in the city of Los Angeles.
“Improving the way we communicate with our residents is a top priority for EWDD,” said EWDD General Manager Jan Perry. “We focused on function so that Angelenos can find the services they need without a lot of clicking.The new website is attractive, easy to navigate and user friendly on both desktop and mobile devices.”

To reach one of the most diverse populations in the nation, EWDD added an easy-to-find tab at the top of the website allowing users to quickly change the screen language from English to 101 other languages such as Spanish, Chinese, Filipino and Korean. A new section, “Job Fairs, Events and Training Programs,” is updated weekly with information about upcoming job fairs, free trainings, employers looking to hire immediately and other workforce-related events. The website is responsive for use on Apple and Android smart phones and other mobile devices.
The website retains other useful features such as a prominent link to JobsLA.org, the city’s digital jobs board with more than 49,000 job listings in the city of L.A. and 606,000 statewide, and locator tools to help residents find EWDD-contracted WorkSource, YouthSource and BusinessSource centers in their neighborhood.
