How do I join?

Step 1: We need to get your organization enrolled in CalJOBS. This is a one-time process, and will not be required every time you are looking to hire. We also have a dedicated specialist to assist you, but we need the following to get you qualified:

  • Copy of the Business License
  • Copy of the Business Accord 25 (Worker’s Compensation & Liability Certificate)
  • Completed W9
  • Vendor Direct Deposit Form

Step 2: Once enrolled and you’re ready to hire, we will need a job description, pay rate, and training plans for 3 months. If there are different shifts or requirements, such as special licenses or certificates needed, you will need to provide that as well. Whether you hire your own, or let us help find you an employee, the final decision is yours as to who you want to employ. The only requirement is that the Chamber needs to be involved before you have the new employee sign their offer. This program also applies to internal job promotions.
