One-Stop Career Centers
Whether you are looking for work, changing careers, or exploring new career options, the Pima County One-Stop System connects job seekers – youth, adults, veterans and dislocated workers – to a network of employment, training, and educational programs in Pima County. By offering high-quality services, referrals, and training, One-Stop bridges the gap between employer and job seeker by connecting qualified applicants with job openings.
Services are offered at two locations: the Kino One-Stop Center has been designated to assist workers who have been laid off (dislocated workers). All other job seekers are served at the Rio Nuevo One-Stop Center.

Intensive Career Services
Intensive Career Services include vocational assessment, individualized career planning, pre-vocational adult education, job search and placement. Services are provided based on eligibilty for a variety of grants targeting low-income, dislocated worker, and disadvantaged youth populations, as well as veterans and homeless job seekers.
Training necessary to obtain employment - for those who meet eligibility and other requirements - is provided from a menu of more than 300 qualified occupational training programs and through on-the-job training contracts directly with employers. An assessment is used to determine whether occupational training is appropriate, and the job seeker is assisted in preparing a training plan.
