Job Seeker Services
Our vision is that every job seeker, every young adult, and every business has the chance to achieve equity and live a high quality of life in our beautiful community of Contra Costa County.
When job seekers need new skills or want a more secure, in-demand career path, our career centers, America’s Job Center of California/EASTBAY Works, offer employment and workforce services, occupational skills training, and educational programs to help you move ahead in life.
Staff at the centers can help job seekers with career planning and assessment, job training, and transition solutions to re-enter the workforce. Workshops are offered on basic computer skills, social networking, job search, résumé development, and interviewing.
