Great news! CareerConneCT is expanding its intake portal. The goal of CareerConneCT is to provide underemployed and unemployed Connecticut residents with resources and training necessary for the pursuit of a well-paying, high-quality career path. The program provides free job training, case management, supportive services, and employment assistance.
Interested jobseekers should enroll through an online intake portal.
Once enrolled, participants will be connected to reskilling, upskilling, or next-skilling opportunities in various in demand fields, such as manufacturing, information technology, health care, infrastructure and clean energy.
Once registered in the portal, participants will complete a brief skills inventory and then receive a Career Coach who will help them access training that meets their skills and interests. Participants also can explore career paths, learning opportunities and available jobs.
To get started, you will need to complete 3 simple steps:
• Create an account on the CareerConneCT portal and complete the intake form
• Complete a brief skills inventory
• Work with your assigned CareerConneCT coach to enroll in a training program that is right for you
If eligible, all training programs are at no cost and provide supportive services such as childcare, transportation, and technology.
As always, please feel free to reach out to me at the Capitol at 800-842-0363 or email me at Joseph.Gresko@cga.ct.gov.
