About SJPL Works

Partners

SJPL Works unites the expertise of the area's top leaders in economic and workforce development to create an extensive network of resources for employment seekers, small business owners, and entrepreneurs. We have partnered with numerous local organizations, including Employment Development Department (EDD), SCORE, Silicon Valley Talent Partnership, Robert Half, SJSU Career Center, US Patent & Trademark Office, AnewAmerica, and work2future. Our strong community partnerships will assist us in providing programming for SJPL Works, and many of these organizations serve on our Advisory Board, providing guidance and feedback for SJPL Works.
