New Website Offers Career Resources for Pa. Workers
PAsmart focuses on education and training for the jobs of today and tomorrow.
From high school students to baby boomers, Governor Tom Wolf says a new website will be one-stop shopping for anybody pursuing an education or career in Pennsylvania.
The Governor's office says the site, PAsmart.gov , is an important step to making it as easy as possible for Pennsylvanians at every stage of their education and career to access the resources they need to be successful.
The site includes access to STEM education, training and information on emerging career paths. It follows the announcement this week of $1.5 million in grants for southwestern Pennsylvania , intended to prepare students and workers for the jobs of today and tomorrow. This includes jobs that offer "family-sustaining wages" and positions that do not require a four-year college degree.
"Our commonwealth is on a comeback and I want to bring students, workers, educators and businesses together like never before to create the best workforce in the nation," said Wolf.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor, the December 2018 unemployment rate in Pennsylvania was 4.2%, slightly higher than the national unemployment rate of 3.9%.
