WorkOne Northeast

WorkOne Northeast’s 11 career centers are at the heart of many of Northeast Indiana Works’ services. 

“We are so appreciative of a job fair WorkOne Northeast arranged for us. We were able to interview on the spot, hire, and drug test many of the candidates.  We were able to fill two of our positions that had been open for months. WorkOne got the word out and brought us awesome talent.”

Renee Arreola, Human Resource Manager, Mobex Global

“I am a 70-year-old disabled Vietnam combat veteran. I had come to the end of my work career and had nothing to look forward to or to motivate me. WorkOne gave me an alternative to giving up. I fought long and hard, went back to school to update my education, and with the help of WorkOne revived my self-respect and self-confidence. I rediscovered my passion for working and became an assistant manager of an automotive parts store.”

John Anderson

“WorkOne Northeast gave me a chance to start over in a new career, even at my age. Through education and training, I’m learning an in-demand trade as a CNC machinist at Greatbatch Medical and making a living wage at the same time. Thank you WorkOne for giving me the chance to show the world that old dogs can learn new tricks.”
