Career search assistance available in many neighborhoods: CDC’s WorkAble program expands

Looking for career counseling in your neighborhood?

The WorkAble program at the Career Development Center at JF&CS combines the services of career counselors, regional employers and volunteers to provide comprehensive services for those who are unemployed or underemployed.  Funded through the United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania, WorkAble takes a holistic approach to helping people with their job search throughout Allegheny County.

WorkAble offers services in several locations including the Career Development Center in Squirrel Hill office at JF&CS, North Hills Community Outreach, South Hills Interfaith Movement (SHIM) and the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.

Now another partner has stepped forward to help WorkAble grow and serve more job seekers. Thanks to funding from South Hills Jewish Pittsburgh, job seekers will be able to access WorkAble services through a pilot program at Mt. Lebanon Library.

Job seekers will be able to work closely with a career counselor to create and implement an appropriate and specific job search plan. WorkAble provides services including: career counseling and assessment; guidance in resume and cover letter writing, job search strategies, networking, workshops to develop job search skills, LinkedIn coaching, job search assistance, including a weekly job opportunities email, employer events and on-site career fairs, and connection to other community resources. Services are free for those who qualify.

WorkAble services are offered at Mt. Lebanon Library by appointment only. To schedule, please call (412) 586-3722. For more information about WorkAble and its partner agencies, visit
