Many career professionals who have unexpectedly found themselves out of work are now working
together, helping each other find new employment opportunities through job search programs sponsored
by the California Employment Development Department (EDD). Provided at no fee to either job seekers
or employers, these services are offered in selected locations throughout the State by EDD's
Experience Unlimited (EU) program.
The EU networking concept started in Berkeley in 1959 and expanded quickly througout the State.
Given the changes in the demographics of the labor force over the past 50 years and the impact of
technology on business operations, networking is still considered one of the best ways to find
employment. EU members come from a wide range of professional, technical, and managerial fields to
participate in the EU program to update their employment search skills to compete in today's labor
market. Members work together to share job leads, job-seeking knowledge, and experiences. For
employers, EU is a resource for highly skilled, professional, technical, and managerial job candidates.
