As we continue to meet people across the country, we’ve heard many stories from job seekers looking for better jobs and from employers looking to fill higher paying jobs with skilled employees. This has shown us that a gap has formed: the skills in demand are not always the skills people have. And this gap is different in each community.
That’s why we’re kicking off a new feature within job search called Pathways as part of our Grow with Google initiative to ensure economic opportunity for everyone. This feature will soon connect you with the job training programs that exist right in your own community so that you can more easily get qualified for the job you want.
We’d like to partner with community colleges, state workforce development organizations, education providers, and others to ensure people can find training programs in their local area. If your organization is interested in working with us on Pathways, please join us.
