Senator Wayne D. Fontana
 

Thank you for the continued feedback and compliments on my News & Views – Special Edition: Jobs! I am proud that it has been a helpful guide to job seekers. I know that finding a job can be a difficult process and that’s why I am continuing to update this list of employers in our region looking for workers. It’s also my hope that this comprehensive list reduces the amount of time you need to extensively search for positions. While this is not an all-inclusive list of job openings, it does represent nearly 3,000 positions.

JobsDid you know that the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh offers career-related assistance, programming, and resources at its Job & Education Center? Located at the main library in Oakland, you can learn more about these services offered by visiting the library's Job & Career Education Center page on their website.

As you know, I partnered with the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh to provide grant funding for a series aimed at building skills and creating excellent resumes and applications that help job seekers get the position they desire. I sponsored seven sessions of the "Skills for Success: The Fontana Series." The feedback and participation was extremely positive and I hope to be able to extend the series into 2012 and assist even more job seekers.

Based on the success that one of the attendees had, it is a very worthwhile program.

“I’m calling to celebrate a success. I moved a mountain – a big mountain – in a couple of days because I was so motivated when I left that class!” – Jerae Palmer

Ms. Palmer was able to land a desired position just a few days after attending one of the sessions. Other participants commented that they learned something new about the job searching process, that the presenters were knowledgeable and that they would recommend the program to a friend.

As the New Year begins, I will continue to inform you of available job opportunities and any job fairs or training sessions that take place in the region. I am committed to doing everything in my power to ensure that creating and retaining good-paying jobs is part of any discussion we have at the state level. Every issue we tackle in Harrisburg should be looked at through a “job lens” and I continue to express this message to my colleagues so that this list can continue to grow.
