We know businesses want to connect with schools, schools want to better understand business needs, and students want and need to see career pathways first-hand. Path to Careers makes those connections happen — effectively and efficiently. Businesses register by providing information about who they are, what they do, and how they would like to connect with schools and students through customized career awareness experiences. Schools register so educators and students alike can easily learn about local businesses and make connections that allow them to see, feel, and understand first-hand the opportunities that exist and the skills and abilities needed to secure them. Path to Careers helps schools focus on what matters — students — while relieving the burden of researching where local businesses are, what they have to offer, and who to contact. Similarly, it is designed with businesses in mind, allowing connections to happen within a streamlined platform that allows them to engage with students and schools in ways that work for them.
Path to Careers is about making local connections. Whether you're a student figuring out what's next after high school, an educator striving to better prepare students for the next step in their lives, or a business looking to find the next generation of leaders, we believe connections are key to unlocking the next step. Path to Careers is here to help make those connections happen – effectively and intentionally.
Path to Careers aims to bring clarity to planning for the future—for students, educators, and businesses. By showing students the variety of local career pathways available to them, providing educators with information about the skills and knowledge needed for students to be successful, and creating opportunities for businesses to directly engage with their future workforce, Path to Careers provides a platform dedicated to increasing knowledge about the career pathways available in Central PA.
