Career Exploration Online

Career Connections HUB

This high-school level, career exploration platform currently connects students with manufacturing job information and opportunities. The fully interactive portal queries student’s interests to match and explore industry-provided high-need occupations. Students completing the experience will be matched with current offerings including career shadow opportunities, internships, part-time, full-time and seasonal work opportunities. PCD will work in-between, “hand” guiding students to schools and those opportunities.

Organizations can use the portal to promote their industry needs and provide info about jobs. PCD also offers 360-degree virtual tour options to allow an immersive "in-house" experience without site safety issues and field trip paperwork. To see the Hub click here

Career Recognition Week - Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources

Agriculture, Food & Natural Resources Career Recognition Week: March 4 - 8

You can support, recognize, highlight, and celebrate!


Career Recognition Weeks have been aligned on the long-recognized 16 Career Clusters (The National Career Clusters® Framework), with a few additions. They were developed by the Partnership for Career Development (PCD) with the collaboration and partnership of members of the Cradle to Career Alliance, and input from participating schools in PCD’s Career Awareness & Preparation (CAP) consortiums.

Career Recognition Weeks span the school year from September through May. They were developed to provide and encourage opportunities for schools and businesses to connect, collaborate, and celebrate careers.

Information about the Partnership may be obtained from the
Pennsylvania Department of State by calling toll-free,
within Pennsylvania, 1-800-732-0999. 
Registration does not imply endorsement. 

The Partnership for Career Development will provide Internal Revenue forms

for inspection free of charge by contacting info@crpcd.org or through the
