Let us help you start the New Year off right.

Looking for a new career or new job? Let us help you!

The PA CareerLink and their partners have services for all ages and all backgrounds to help you reach your New Year’s goals.

If you are looking for a job we have workshops that focus on how to use the system to search for a job, resume building and even one for a mock interview to help you put your best foot forward to that perspective employer.  We have staff that will work with you to find a good job match for you and even hand carry your resume to an employer and promote you to an existing opening at their company.  We are able to take that a step further and offer our On the Job Training Program to the employers as an incentive to hire you.

Maybe you don’t have the skills that you need for the career you want.  We also have a training program available to you where you receive a type of scholarship to help pay for the training as long as the training provider/school is on the state provider list and the course lets you enter a demand occupation.  Once you graduate we will also help you find a job in your new field.

There are so many opportunities available to you and your families.  The best way to start is to just call your local PA CareerLink and schedule an appointment to meet with an Employment Specialist. Tell them what you are looking for and they will help you develop a plan to get the career you are looking for.  Call: PA CareerLink Westmoreland in Youngwood at 724-755-2330, PA CareerLink AlleKiski in New Kensington at 724-334-8600 or PA CareerLink Fayette in Lemont Furnace at 724-434-5627 to get started today and take advantage of the many free services.
