The Commerce Department and the team at the PA CareerLink® help employers design job descriptions and identify the skills needed for a given job, and then leverage our database of the tens of thousands of job seekers who have come to the County for assistance in finding new employment. As part of the process, we evaluate each candidate for basic skills (reading, mathematics, analytical skills) and provide training opportunities for those willing to improve their capacity for job readiness.
Every business uses our services in its own way. Some businesses choose to post jobs on JobGateway®, receive help with pre-screening applicants, and initiate on-site recruiting. Other businesses use the our expertise in identifying training resources, grants, and labor market information.
We can provide a list of qualified, motivated candidates for any position, free of charge. If you are interested, fill our our Business Assistance Form and we will get back to you to schedule a meeting.
We'd appreciate the opportunity to work for you and to find opportunities for others. That's our job. So let's talk and let's get people to work.

Access to an extensive database of workers
Ability to post job openings easily via JobGateway®
Applicant screening/testing for your job openings
Labor market information
