Launched in July 2012, PA CareerLink® is part of the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry’s initiative to transform the landscape of how job-seekers find family-sustaining jobs and how employers find the skilled candidates that they need. Because many of the services are federally funded, most are provided at no cost to businesses and individuals.
