The Department of Labor & Industry launched a redesigned PA CareerLink website that aims to make it easier for Pennsylvania workers, employers and workforce development groups to connect to vital job search and career development tools.
“L&I is focused on training Pennsylvania workers for the new economy emerging in the wake of the global COVID-19 pandemic,” said Secretary Jerry Oleksiak. “To accomplish this, we’re modernizing and upgrading our job search and reskilling programs. We began with redesigning the PA CareerLink website to be more user friendly for users, which is important because even before the pandemic, the job search and application process has moved almost entirely online for most businesses.”
The redesigned PA CareerLink website focuses on accessibility and features an enhanced candidate sourcing and application process, which will simplify the hiring process for jobseekers and employers alike. It also makes other key resources more easily accessible, including links to the search pages for trainings, apprenticeships and internships, as well as adult education resources, the Employment, Advancement and Retention Network (EARN), and benefits through PA Compass.
PA CareerLink offers free services that help workers access job search and training assistance, and help employers find the skilled workers they need to succeed.
“Virtual PA CareerLink services have been provided continuously for job seekers and employers, including adult education classes, career counseling, and on-the-job training programs,” said Oleksiak. “Most PA CareerLinks have begun taking limited in-person appointments as well. I encourage everyone to use the valuable free services they provide.”
To schedule an appointment for limited on-site services, contact your local PA CareerLink office. Contact information can be found at pacareerlink.pa.gov.
To protect the health and safety of customers and staff, and to continue following COVID-19 social distancing and mitigation recommendations, UC courtesy telephones are not available in PA CareerLink offices until further notice.
