Education providers and apprenticeships play a key role in preparing today’s workforce. Current market trends suggest the recognized need to link education to economic demand to ensure better service delivery and employment outcomes for students. Students must have the skills, training, and education to achieve their career goals, while local employers must be able to hire, develop, and retain a competitive workforce. Successful career development and employment outcomes for students require institutions to provide relevant career guidance while working in partnership with local employers to supply a pipeline of talent that meets demand.
Individuals who have been incarcerated at some point in their life often face significant barriers to employment post release. These barriers present challenges that greatly contribute to the rate of recidivism. Quite often, ex-offenders lack a certain level of education or skills required to gain and maintain employment. Engaging individuals in training opportunities and secure job search activity prior to release has resulted in significant positive outcomes in their transition back to society and the workforce. Giving individuals access to the following tools helps individuals find a purpose and focus their attention on being productive, wage-earning individuals – a critical stabilizing factor that breaks the cyclical nature of recidivism.

The sites also features veteran-friendly employers.
