WorkOne Express North career services will move on June 30th, mobile services to increase
Indianapolis, IN – Local American Job Center’s free career services at 9002 Purdue Rd. #200 on the Northwest side of Indianapolis (near the Pyramids) will officially move to the WorkOne Indy West location at 34th St. and Lafayette Rd. on June 30th.
The North location was opened as an “express” site for mid- to professional-level dislocated workers shortly after the 2008 recession, designed to augment WorkOne Indy’s career services on the Northside. With an improved unemployment rate and changing needs of job-seekers, the facility has seen a significant reduction in traffic for re-employment services. Career coaches and case managers from the North office will be relocating to the existing WorkOne Indy West on June 30th or be deployed to community sites through mobile service delivery.
“This transition aligns with EmployIndy’s strategy to deliver services in areas with the greatest need,” according to Chief Operations Officer Marie Mackintosh.
In addition to the East and West WorkOne Indy locations, EmployIndy is increasing availability of mobile services, which set up workshops and career coaching at various community organizations around Indianapolis. “We believe this will immediately improve client accessibility by bringing services into more Indy neighborhoods in better coordinated ways.”
EmployIndy will still retain the North office for other career service programs, including its EmployUp program that serves long-term unemployed and underemployed job-seekers.
