 The Oakland Private Industry Council and Oakland Career Center invites the community to visit their new location at 268 Grand Avenue in Oakland!

Formerly located at 1212 Broadway in Downtown Oakland, Oakland PIC relocated and opened its new Career Center on Monday, October 23 to continue providing free employment and job training services to the community.

Oakland PIC is a one-stop shop, meeting the employment needs of customers looking for a job and employers looking to recruit exceptional candidates.
