Centralina is welcoming job seekers and employers to use the region’s new career tool “Career Headlight,” to learn what it can do to help career seekers identify careers and jobs in the region, the skills required, and where to get the needed training in the region.
“We are inviting organizations and their staff from high schools, technical schools, community colleges, universities, career centers and non-profits as well as any other organizations to use Career Headlight,” said David Hollars, Centralina Workforce Board Director.
Career Headlight is unique because it allows all organizations, students and other job seekers to identify rewarding local careers and jobs, identify the skills needed and how and where to get the training in the region.
“The Career Headlight tool responds to recommendations in the Prosperity for Greater Charlotte CEDS report,” said Mike Manis, Centralina Economic Development Commission President. “Considered one of the best practice strategies across the country, it helps us to more quickly and effectively close the gap between what employers need and the skills, education, and training pipeline we have within the region.“
