About Us

We're a member of EASTBAY Works, one of the many One-Stop Career Centers located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties. EASTBAY Works is a regional partnership designed to coordinate employment activities in the two counties, funded by the Department of Labor and the State of California.

Mission Statement:

"Connecting people with employment and training opportunities that empower the individual and strengthen the local economy."


On September 19, 1995, the doors to the Center for Career Transition, a partnership of three organizations: Ohlone College, the Alameda County Private Industry Council (PIC) and the Employment Development Department (EDD) were opened. The Center for Career Transition was in operation for another two years in the same context before transforming into the Tri-Cities One-Stop Career Center, Newark in 1998.

The Career Center was the primary host of the Job Fair for the first three years, which brought approximately 105 employers and 1,800 people to the Newark Ohlone Center. In 1999 and 2000, the Career Center co-hosted an annual Job Fair with the Ohlone Job Placement office, bringing in approximately 130 employers and over 4,000 participants to the Ohlone College Fremont campus.

Every year we coordinate multiple job fairs and employment events. The program has helped thousands of job seekers and businesses connect.
