PA CareerLink® offices in Westmoreland and Fayette Counties are currently open for business by appointments only.  Due to COVID- 19 restrictions we must limit the number of individuals inside our offices. It is very easy to schedule an appointment to Job Search and work on your resume, use the computers in the CRC or meet with a staff member for career guidance. You can call the offices Monday through Friday from 8 AM – 4 PM to schedule your appointment.

For those customers that arrive at the CareerLink® without a pre-schedule appointment a staff member is available at our Triage center to assist you with basic questions and direction.  You may even be able to schedule an appointment on the spot if we are not at our maximum number in the facility at that time.

Right now, the PACL in Youngwood is holding Adult Education classes on site as is AlleKiski CareerLink®. All other classes are currently being held virtually.  As of September the CareerLinks® in Westmoreland and Fayette Counties are also holding virtual workshops.  Registration for these Zoom Workshops can be accessed on the PA CareerLink® Calendar of Events.  Workshop topics include:

Financial Literacy

Employers, we have not forgotten about you either.  The Business Service Team Members are here to assist you in posting jobs, searching for candidates to match your openings and even work with you to develop an “On the Job” training contract if you find a good candidate that may be lacking some of the skills needed to perform all of the job duties required in the position. You may have current employees that need their skills upgraded so you want to learn more about our ”Incumbent Worker Training Program”.  We also have a “Transitional Employment Program” to assist individuals with barriers. If you are interested in helping an individual gain some experience to assist them in reaching their career goals please ask for details. The best thing for you to do is to call the CareerLink® and ask to speak to an Account Representative.  They will be able to assist you individually and explain all programs and eligibility requirements.

Let us help you move forward to secure a successful end to 2020 and a productive 2021.
