At the center of our Career Services is the Indiana DWD’s designation of EmployIndy as the regional operator to maintain oversight of the functions of WorkOne services in Marion County. WorkOne Indy provides connectivity between unemployed and underemployed job seekers and employers, serves workers dislocated by layoffs and changing industry needs, and provides informative career navigation and connection to local resources for advancing a promising career. Our one-stop WorkOne American Job Center location for Marion County is located at 4410 N. Shadeland Avenue.
In addition to this location, EmployIndy has positioned WorkOne Indy to have a broader reach by partnering with other organizations around Indy to house staff on a regular basis. Currently these access points include seven Indianapolis Public Library branches and the Ivy Tech Indianapolis Campus, and local adult basic education providers, with ongoing development of partnerships to expand in other locations.

Positioning career navigators in neighborhood locations offers Indy residents – particularly those in our target impact areas – a more convenient opportunity to access services and referrals. Additionally, WorkOne Indy clients have multiple staff members assigned to them to ensure the support they need is always available, including resource coordinators who can help with barriers such as housing, child care, interview clothing, and more.
