The Cape and Islands Career Center serves people of all ages who are seeking employment:
- adults 22 and older

Most of the services provided are prepaid by our tax dollars. As a result, it costs job seekers and employers nothing to take advantage of these services. To benefit from these services, all a job seeker or employer needs do is become a member of the Cape and Islands Career Center. Membership is FREE.
Among the services offered at no charge to job seekers is access to the Resource Room.
The Resource Room provides job seekers an opportunity to
- conduct a job search via the Internet
- prepare cover letters and resumes using a self-paced software program
- copy resumes using a copy machine
- send a resume via FAX
- set up a job interview by telephone
In addition, job seekers can attend a variety of job search workshops to assist them in their effort to find employment. These services are available at NO CHARGE to the job seeker!
Although most services are available at no charge there is a fee for the more intensive services. The intensive services are customized services provided to job seekers on a one on one basis. In the case of the job seekers, fees may be paid by individuals, employers, unions, or, for eligible individuals, by state, federal or philanthropic sources.
The Career Center is an activity of the Cape & Islands Workforce Development Board and a collaborative of three agencies:
- Job Training & Employment Corporation (JTEC)
- Division of Career Services (DCS)
- Division of Unemployment Assistance (DUA)
It is funded in part by the Department of Labor, Department of Education, Department of Transitional Assistance and Barnstable County.
