In December 2017, a reporter from the San Mateo Daily Journal visited the SparkPoint Center at Skyline College. The article was originally intended to cover the newly launched NOVA Job Center at Skyline College and the workforce services that are offered to assist unemployed individuals in San Mateo County. However, the reporter chose to expand the article to cover the complete set of services that SparkPoint at Skyline College offers to students and community members. In particular, the article addressed the synergy of different services on offer at the SparkPoint Center, with the goal of assisting community members in San Mateo County achieve long term financial prosperity. The NOVA Job Center is a critical piece because increased income from a successful job search directly improves the financial situation of a family, enabling better housing options, increased ability to afford education, and more capital to account for in a budget.
