Alameda County Jobs: Finding Companies That Are Hiring

Tagged as: 1st United News
Finding a new job can be challenging, especially living within a county-wide labor force of more than 801,000. Whether you've been furloughed, recently laid off, or are simply seeking a new opportunity in Alameda County and the East Bay, here are some resources that may assist you.
  • Alameda County’s Online Employment Center is the home for any job postings related to Alameda County government. Positions range from administrative team members and civil engineers to firefighter recruits. Every position’s salary range and filing deadline are clearly noted, and you can fine-tune your job search based on department, location, and specific keywords. If you don’t find a County position that fits your current needs, go ahead and complete this application template, which will make it much faster to apply for future roles with Alameda County.
  • In addition to allowing you to post your resume online, get career guidance, and search for jobs, job fairs, and workshops across California, CalJOBS lets you narrow down your search to current vacancies within Alameda County.

  • Don’t let the name fool you – in addition to assisting its community college students, faculty, and staff, the College of Alameda Career and Employment Center offers free employment services for many East Bay residents. Job postings submitted by local employers are added to the site as they arrive, then organized by industry for easy access.
  • EASTBAY Works, a network of 13 business and career centers located throughout Alameda and Contra Costa Counties, provides local job seekers with a host of self-directed resources, including job search workshops, basic computer classes, and access to phones, copiers, computers, and more. Its staff provides one-on-one career counseling, networking opportunities, and job placement assistance to area residents looking for work.
  • The Tri-Valley Career Center (TVCC) doesn’t just help local job seekers find their next great role; it provides them with workspace, counseling, and in some cases, direct referrals to local companies. TVCC works with small business owners and employers in the area to help them promote and fill their current vacancies too.
  • If you’re thinking about a new line of work but lack the necessary experience, California’s Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) could help you gain the skills you need to succeed. DAS consultants work with employers from around the state in hopes of meeting their skilled-worker needs. Find an apprentice program.
