WorkOne Northeast offers free training programs that guide people in moving forward with their careers. Services include preparation for high school equivalency exams, financial assistance for college tuition, and short-term certification training for in-demand jobs. The short-term classes can be completed in just four to sixteen weeks and include instruction in such areas as:
  • Welding
  • Industrial maintenance

Veterans Services

Veterans come first at Northeast Indiana Works and WorkOne Northeast. That means they are first in line for services, and given access to job information listed on IndianaCareerConnect.com 24 hours before the jobs are posted for the general public. Veterans also benefit from veteran-specific career planning sessions and hiring events conducted annually.

After successfully completing assessments, WorkOne Northeast gave me the financial support necessary to obtain my Commercial Driver’s License. I now own my own rig and I went from a $10-an-hour job to one paying $52,000 a year, allowing me to better support my family. Without WorkOne, I don’t know where I’d be.
