The employment services were located in the low semi-circular building, while the two-storey building housed the administration department. A single-storey structure with adjoining rooms completed these two buildings. The administration department, career guidance, and employment services with a cashier were in separate parts of the building.
Jobseekers were guided through different entrances and waiting areas and divided into groups according to their occupation and gender. Job placement interviews were held in individual offices. Applicants who were accepted for a job went out directly via the corridor, while others were directed to the area where unemployment benefits were paid out. The Unemployment Office in Dessau has several entrances to ensure faster working processes. People who were looking for employment were not to be subjected to the social exclusion implied by waiting in long queues in front of the Employment Office.
