TULSA, OKLAHOMA — The Cherokee Nation is opening its first-ever Career Services office in Tulsa on Wednesday. With more job openings, and as the lead recruiter for the new Macy’s fulfillment center, a Tulsa office will make job seeking easier for more individuals in the Tulsa metro area.
The 5,100-square-foot office will offer employment programs, vocational training, GED classes, vocational rehabilitation, job referrals, Talking Leaves Job Corps outreach and admissions, and career transition services.
“Opening a Career Services office in Tulsa is a step in better serving our citizens in the Tulsa area. With more job opportunities from our health center expansions, new business ventures and Macy’s fulfillment center, this office will be a valuable resource for recruiting more Cherokees and helping them find stable employment,” Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker said.
Cherokee Nation Career Services helped more than 5,000 citizens with employment programs this fiscal year.
The new office is staffed by 10 employees and is near a variety of the tribe’s businesses and economic development partners in the Tulsa area. Career Services is also expanding offices in Mayes and Sequoyah counties.
