You are a Dislocated Worker if you have been permanently laid off or if you have received a notice of termination or layoff from employment. Dislocated Workers may qualify for a variety of job search and training services from PA CareerLink® Lehigh Valley. As a Dislocated Worker, we can help you get back to work through three types of services that are available to you at no cost: Core Services, Intensive Services, and/or Training Services.
All job seekers have access to Core Services that are available at all PA CareerLink® Lehigh Valley Centers.
If Core Services do not produce results in your job search, you may be eligible for more Intensive Services. These services include:
- Case Management

If you qualify for Training Services, you will have access to a broad range of training services. Our PA CareerLink® Centers have an extensive list of training programs, descriptions, and costs to help guide you in the decision-making process. Training includes:
