We are Hiring!!

Read more about our open Business Services Manager position:

We are seeking a full-time Business Services Manager to join our team with the primary responsibilities of developing and maintaining relationships with employer partners and contributing substantially to employment outcomes for our employment programs. The Business Services Manager serves as an ambassador, both externally with employers and within Opportunity Junction, as a champion for effective employer partnerships.
Our culture is nimble, implementing current best practices and embracing new opportunities while learning from mistakes, and you should be, too. If we can find a better way to serve our job seekers or the employers who hire them, we want to make it happen. The successful candidate must have the ability to build strong relationships, a data-centered focus (we are highly data-driven and data-informed), strong organizational skills, and the ability to work in a fast-paced environment.
Some evening and weekend work is required. Local residents are strongly encouraged to apply.
This position reports to the Vice President of Programs. Due to Covid-19, we are not currently working in the office, but plan to return when pandemic conditions allow. This position has the possibility for a flexible work schedule with some days required in the office each week.

The Business Services Manager’s responsibilities include:
• Arranging meetings with potential employer partners to market employer services;
• Working with staff to incorporate employer feedback into the programs;
• Working across teams to develop appropriate marketing materials for all employer offerings;
• Using Salesforce to track opportunities and outcomes;
• Attending Chamber and other community events; and
• Such other duties as may be required (we all wear a lot of hats around here).

Key competencies for the position, developed through any combination of education and experience:
• Relationship building: Able to establish strong relationships with employer partners, stakeholders, and demographically diverse clients;
• Accountability: Willingness to document and accept responsibility for tasks, projects, and outcomes;
• Teamwork: Ability to work independently and as part of the team;
• Technology: Computer-savvy, with proficiency in Microsoft Word, email, and web applications, including the ability to learn to use Salesforce for data entry and outcome tracking;
• Adaptability/Flexibility: Ability to adjust style and approach according to current organizational priorities and situations; and
• Communication: Strong written and verbal skills with ability to calibrate for a variety of audiences. Ability to communicate effectively via email.

Opportunity Junction fights poverty by helping motivated Contra Costa residents gain skills and confidence to get and keep jobs that support themselves and their families.

Thank you so much
This program was one of my best life decisions so far. In class #43 i did a mock interview with a Regional President for Wells Fargo. Now, im an admin for 2 Regional Brokerage Managers!! I use most of what i learned at OJ everyday, including using MS Outlook, Excel, And PowerPoint. Trust the process. Believe in yourself and your support. YOU CAN do anything!
Thank you O.J. for accommodating me last Thursday night when I needed to take a typing test for a job I applied for and the deadline was Monday and no where else had availability. A big hug and thank you to the lady (can't remember her name) who was so nice and sweet. I could not pass this darn test, I was feeling the pressure as 9pm approached and she told me to get up walk around, shake my hands out and listen to my favorite song. I went to the car and put on my headset and music and BAM I finally passed the test. This was my first time there and it's a class act place and thank you for being there to help the underprivileged. I do have to say it was a bit loud in there so if you are easily distracted as I am I would difinately bring headsets and music. Also about a year ago I emptied my closet of most of my professional clothing and donated it to O. J. and it was nice to know ladies that found jobs are now wearing those clothes.
Our Deepest Fear By Marianne Williamson Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness That most frightens us. We ask ourselves Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small Does not serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking So that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, As children do. We were born to make manifest The glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; It's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, We unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we're liberated from our own fear, Our presence automatically liberates others.
Happy Tuesday! . . Join us tonight at 6:00pm for our “Job Fair Tactics 101” workshop. We will be discussing ways on how to make your next job fair experience a successful one! . . Hosted by: Shaun Samuels, Career Counselor with @opportunityjunction
I just wanted to tell everybody there at OpportunityJunction how grateful I am for the time and effort you put in to people like me. If it was not for this program I may not be where I am right now. They opened my eyes and guided me in the direction that I was already going.. however they finessed me! I learned every bit of professional courtesy I have from this program. OpportunityJunction helped change my life and I will never forget it. I want to send a special thank you to Norman, may your days begin and end with a song. I bet nobody really knows how cool you really are!!
Today was the third day on my new job with Co Co County, I can honestly say that not a day goes by that I have not applied the wonderful skills I gained while participating in the Opportunity Junction job training program. Your program has made a great impact on me and I will always be grateful to each of you for your contribution into my life. THANK YOU!!!! 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
