Career Counseling and Job Search Assistance

In our Comprehensive One Stop Center, we seek to meet the needs of residents of Oakland (18+ years old). We do this as part of Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program of the US Department of Labor.  Our clients can choose from various levels of services, including:

  • basic information 

  • staff-assisted job search workshops

  • intensive, one-on-one employment training

  • placement assistance with a case manager


Our goal is to support job seekers with more than just information. We seek to provide workshops and training for all aspects of job readiness. Among our current services:

  • resume preparation and review

  • basic computer training

  • job search and interview techniques

  • vocational training

I want to attend an information session and pre-register for services!

With WIOA funding, we can provide support for job seekers who need extra help to fund skills training, educational improvement, and on-the-job training. The same WIOA program also has provided limited financial assistance for travel, uniforms, textbooks, licenses, and/or dues.  

In addition, we are part of a regional network of comprehensive career centers spanning from Contra Costa County to the southern tip of Alameda County. The network is called Eastbay Works. Clients who use our employment training and placement services become members of the regional network. That means that if the place of residency changes, it’s possible to simply utilize a comprehensive center closest to the residence within the Eastbay Works network.

All of our services are free and are available to those who are unemployed, dislocated, under-employed, or simply seeking better employment opportunities.

We're proud to be Oakland's One Stop Shop
