New online service helps job seekers

Written by The News Enterprise Staff

Career EDGE, a web-based platform to deliver virtual career services to job-seekers is being implemented statewide.

It consists of 18 interactive modules with built-in virtual coaching including a job interview simulator, resume and job application builder, guidance in developing a personal brand and essential life skills curriculum to support career seekers in preparation for finding a job or advance in employment.

The South Central Workforce Development Board was the first in the state to utilize the Career EDGE platform and saw the opportunity for its expansion statewide. The Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board is excited about this service and the opportunity it provides for the region.

“We are looking forward to making it available to all Kentuckians,” Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet Deputy Secretary Josh Benton said. Along with the introduction of Career EDGE in each of the state’s 10 workforce regions, is an outreach effort primarily led on the social media platforms, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @kycareeredge. The social media presence will enhance the service delivery of Career EDGE content, provide additional resources to career seekers and allow for a forum to share best practices in utilizing virtual tools for the job search.

Access to Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board’s Kentucky Career EDGE platform is provided at kycareeredge.com/lincoln. New users simply register for an account by entering in basic contact information, along with their ZIP code to verify Kentucky residency. Registration takes less than one minute, according to a news release announcing the service.
