We bring together higher education, community colleges, primary and secondary schools, local agencies centered around career advancement and economic development, and local employers to teach our workforce employability skills, placing workers in higher opportunity careers.
PA Careerlink® Lehigh Valley is looking to partner with local employers like you to develop career pathways so that workers can better understand long-term growth potential and career trajectory within your business or organization. Career Pathways can also direct new employees to your business while you continue to retain and grow your workforce.
Career Pathways are used by recent graduates, adults looking for new career opportunities, existing employees looking to grow their careers, guidance counselors helping students plan for their future, HR departments helping employees with goal setting, and C-suit level leaders creating succession plans.
What is a Career Pathway?
To put it simply, career pathways are visual representations of your company’s workforce ladder. Think of it as a mapping tool for your prospective and existing employee pool to learn how they can grow their careers. It also serves as a tool for you to use to organize hiring needs and succession plans.
