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
  • Career Workshops
  • Resume Workshops 
  • Help in Planning your Job Search
  • Assessment of your Skills and Abilities
  • One-on-One Job Counseling

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:

  • Occupational Skills Training
  • On-the-Job Training
