Workforce Central is reporting a new gift from State Farm Insurance will help students see how their classwork connects to a career path.

CareerLink Pierce County is a web-based tool that introduces students and young adults to career paths in a variety of fields. 

“State Farm’s ongoing support lets us reach farther into the community so that the tool is widely available across Pierce County,” said Linda Nguyen, CEO at WorkForce Central.

“Making sure the next generation has tools to plan their future is really important to us, and that’s why we continue to support programs like CareerLink,” said Ty Cordova of State Farm. 

The business portal creates a safe space through which young adults can learn about local businesses, become familiar with the many careers these businesses offer, seek internship and summer job opportunities, and interact with professionals to learn what it’s like to work in the industry and what it takes to get a job there.

Businesses are encouraged to participate in CareerLink and can register online at workforce-central.org/CareerLink.
