NORTHEAST PHILADELPHIA- Philadelphia Works joined with leadership from the Community College of Philadelphia (CCP) on Feb. 8, 2019 to open the new PA CareerLink® Philadelphia Resource Hub at the CCP Northeast Regional Center.  The new hub will serve as an access point to comprehensive services for both job seekers and employers located in Northeast Philadelphia.

“This new Hub will better serve our customers in the far Northeast,” said H. Patrick Clancy, President and CEO of Philadelphia Works. “Our goal is to connect both job seekers and employers in order to help fuel growth of our residents and businesses, while helping to align our services with Community College of Philadelphia programs. We are grateful for the opportunity to provide this critical service to our community.”

The Hub features a fully-functioning computer lab with access to all digital services provided at a typical PA CareerLink® Philadelphia Center. There is also a full-time site administrator, who will be available for one-on-one job search assistance, resume development, or referral to more comprehensive services offered at other PA CareerLink® Philadelphia locations.  Regular workshops and other classroom-based instruction are planned for the coming months and will be facilitated by staff from one of the other four stand-alone PA CareerLink® Philadelphia centers.

Additionally, the new Hub will serve as a hyperlocal recruitment center for local employers. All PA CareerLink® Philadelphia locations regularly host pre-screening and on-site interview days for some of the largest, and smallest, employers in the city. The Job Resource Hub will provide a dedicated location for employers in Northeast Philadelphia to host recruitment events or tap interested job seekers in their neighborhood.

“We see this Job Resource Hub as another pillar in our commitment to serving the community,” said Dr. Donald Guy Generals, president of Community College of Philadelphia and Philadelphia Works Board Member. “It is exciting for the Community College and Philadelphia Works to come together to address the need for coordinated workforce development efforts in Northeast Philadelphia.  We hope this new hub will benefit not only CCP students, but the entire Northeast Philadelphia community.

The opening of new PA CareerLink® Philadelphia location aligns with many of the recommendations outlined in the citywide workforce development strategy, Fueling Philadelphia’s Talent Engine, released last year. By expanding access to this resource, Philadelphia Works is helping more residents connect with free training and support services they need to enter, or re-enter, the workforce.

People of the College

SHAWANA
I went to CCP for a while, then I stopped. I was laid off from my job last September. One of my goals was to just focus on school. So when I was laid off, I took the opportunity to come back. Because of CCP’s policies, a lot of my classes transferred and I was able to come back and only take about three to four classes. My plan after graduation is to begin at La Salle while working part time. My education is so important. I let my work get in the way previously; now I’m taking my education seriously!
KAVON
I’m currently at Temple University studying Theater and Business Administration. In my high school, I was encouraged to think outside of the box and think about time management. My counselor from my high school recommended we go to CCP first because the College adds a lot of value and character for students. I ended up enrolling in CCP with a full ride!
PALUMA
I come from Puerto Rico, so the easiest way to transfer my credits and not have a big student loan was to come here to CCP. I was looking around at other colleges and CCP seemed like a really good fit for what I was looking for—and I heard good things. I’m glad I did.
SYMEON
My major here at the College is Business Administration. All of the ‘fun’ activities I thought were just for ‘fun’ as a kid were actually business-related so I decided that would be the best career to get into.
