PA CareerLink website

PA CareerLink is Pennsylvania’s job search website which is free to employers and job seekers; new job postings appear daily. Once you create an account, the system aids you in creating a resume after you enter your education, work history, etc. While you can upload a different resume, everyone should create a resume on the system; it is the system-generated resume that employers will see when searching for talent to match their job openings. Some features of PA CareerLink include Big Interview, Torq, Military Translator, Day in the Life videos, and much more.
