One-Stop Employment Services
The City of Oakland's local employment programs offer Oakland residents an opportunity to participate in the City's economic mainstream and gain experience with contractors on City development projects.
The program serves Oakland residents of all genders, from all walks of life, including the underserved and ex-offender. Financial assistance may be available to eligible residents.
Contractors who participate in the City's development projects must comply with Oakland's Local Hire Compliance Ordinance and meet Oakland resident hiring goals.
An on-site Job Developer evaluates the skill levels of Oakland residents seeking work as skilled or unskilled workers on construction projects.
The Referral Program keeps job seekers’ names, contact information and skill levels in their database.
