Pennsylvania launches COVID-19 job hiring portal

 

April 14, 2020



Pennsylvanians looking for work can now find life-sustaining businesses that are hiring through a new online COVID-19 job portal at https://www.pacareerlink.pa.gov/jponline/JobSeeker/COVID19Employment launched by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry (L&I).

“Many life-sustaining businesses across Pennsylvania are hiring and this new portal will help connect them with people looking for a job,” said L&I Secretary Jerry Oleksiak. “A top priority of L&I is to provide businesses with access to the workforce they need to maintain their life-sustaining operations and help our workers find jobs, especially during this unprecedented and challenging time.”

People seeking employment can visit http://www.PAcareerlink.pa.gov and select the green “PA COVID-19 Jobs – Hiring Immediately” job portal banner to see active job openings. Selecting the “Apply Now” button for a listed position will redirect individuals to the employer’s website or email where they can apply directly with the employer and speed up the hiring process.

Life-sustaining businesses can feature their job openings on the portal through an easy to use online form, https://expressforms.pa.gov/apps/pa/dli/covid-19-pa-job-portal. Businesses must meet the criteria of a life-sustaining business and must have more than 10 job openings .

The PA COVID-19 job portal is updated daily so businesses in need are spotlighted and people searching for employment have the latest job information.

The new COVID-19 job portal is part of the PA CareerLink® system, an effective one-stop shop for Pennsylvania job seekers and employers. Local PA CareerLink® business teams are assisting life-sustaining businesses to ensure their specific hiring needs are met.

Although PA CareerLink® offices across the commonwealth are physically closed to adhere to necessary social distancing measures, the majority of staff are teleworking and providing virtual services to both job seekers and employers.
