The Lincoln Trail Career Centers have launched a new, interactive Web site to assist job seekers and employers. The new site provides information about Career Center services and locations in eight counties, including Breckinridge, Grayson, Hardin, Larue, Marion, Meade, Nelson and Washington.
The Web site features a virtual Career Center with information about career counseling, training, and assistance for veterans, the disabled and the unemployed. Also included is relocation information, a link to the Lincoln Trail Career Centers' Facebook page, regional news, and a place for employers to post available jobs and access labor market information.
"The Lincoln Trail Career Center Web site has a wealth of information for job seekers and employers," said Jim Skees, Business Liaison for the Lincoln Trail Area Development District. "We think users will appreciate the fresh look and feel, ease-of-use and interactive features the new Web site brings."
The Lincoln Trail Workforce Investment Board oversees the Lincoln Trail Career Centers to provide a one-stop solution to businesses and job seekers. Employers can access state and local resources to recruit qualified employees from a variety of backgrounds and skill sets. The Centers also can assist with employer training programs, funding for training and assessments, and business retention and expansion efforts. Job seekers have direct access to computerized information about everything from jobs to specialized assistance and training programs.
