While there has been a decline in the overall number of job seekers served this past year compared with the previous year, it is not proportionate to the surge in hiring and economic success that is occurring in Silicon Valley. Although many of NOVA customers are finding work, there are still many others who are seeking reemployment assistance. There are also new customers coming through the Job Center’s doors everyday, which can be attributed to the uptick in churn and disruption we are seeing, with new innovation replacing obsolete industries. This past year, NOVA responded to notifications of layoffs from employers through the official WARN (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification) notices that impacted 3,164 individuals, up from 2,687 affected the previous year.
