Concord California Employment Resource Center

At LDS Employment Resource Services (LDS Jobs), we'll help you become gainfully employed through education and networking with local companies.Whether you are you looking for a better job, interested in starting your own business, in need of education or training, or just need help managing your family budget or personal finances, Self-Reliance Services (SRS), formally known as LDS Employment Resource Services, can help support you on your path to greater temporal and spiritual self-reliance. Contact your local bishop or the stake Self-Reliance specialist and ask about attending an upcoming Self-Reliance devotional and joining a Self-Reliance group. You can also receive one-on-one assistance by visiting a Self-Reliance Resource Center or LDS Employment Resource Center if available in your area.

Even if a center is not close enough for you to visit, we recommend that you log-in to ldsjobs.org and create your profile. On ldsjobs.org you will find many tools and tips to help you, including links to local employment, self-employment, and education resources.
