Greetings!


Welcome to the September edition of our monthly newsletter, the PA CareerLink® Connection. We hope you find this information helpful while you continue, and ultimately succeed, in your job search.


PA CareerLink® will continue to provide reemployment services during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis through alternate means as our Delaware County offices remain closed to the general public but are open upon appointment. If you would like to make an appointment, please call 610-447-3350. Please keep in mind that we no longer have a direct phone to the Unemployment Service Center.


Also, in addition to a possible Coronavirus resurgence in the coming months, please keep in mind that flu season is upon us. Let’s all help each other to stay healthy so that we can keep businesses open and workers employed. Read up on flu vaccinations here

Now Hiring

In addition to the many job openings you will find on our State Job Board we will continue to inform you of local recruitment drives, interview sessions, etc. Please check our “Events” listings on pacareerlink.pa.gov for up-to-date information on virtual recruitment availability.

Job seekers over 40 who would like one-on-one assistance with their job search may also be interested in the Back to Work Program

 


Online Workshops

Please see our September Calendar for a listing of our current Online Workshops. You will find detailed registration instructions as you scroll down. You might also be interested in some of these Job Resources that we’ve compiled to make your job search safer and more successful.

 

See the Job Resources guide here. Long-term unemployed jobseekers will find more intensive assistance with the GPS 360 Program.


Unemployment Compensation Information

If you are employed in Pennsylvania and are unable to work because of Coronavirus disease (COVID-19), you may be eligible for Unemployment or Workers’ Compensation benefits. The Department of Labor and Industry will continue to provide important employment benefit updates as the situation evolves. Find more information here.

Pandemic Unemployment Assistance

Because Pandemic Unemployment Claims are being handled differently within PA’s Unemployment system, please make sure you read the information here before reaching out for assistance.
