QuickTrainforJobs.com is a comprehensive employment connector web tool designed to help job seekers find open, available, short-term and affordable training based on current regional employment needs. The website successfully supports a world-class workforce development system in Pittsburgh and Allegheny County.
Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board (3RWIB) formed a public-private system of more than 80 workforce development stakeholders, known as Pittsburgh Works. Their fast-track job site, QuickTrainforJobs.com, is the result of Five Star’s development expertise. With our custom content management system, 3RWIB non-technical staff can access and manage nearly every aspect of the website. Training providers with administrative access can add, delete, and edit course offerings on the fly.
Connecting jobseekers with low-cost, high-quality, short-term occupational training and employment, the platform:
- Highlights regional high demand occupations – increasing hiring success rates
- Streamlines information for job seekers – promoting short-term training available in the region
- Connects candidates to service providers and community resources
- Generates reporting data for training administrators and career counselors
Funded by the Highmark Local Workforce Initiative, Quick Train for Jobs serves as a clearinghouse for training programs with some of the region’s most recognized institutions including the Community College of Allegheny County, Bidwell Training Center, and the University of Pittsburgh Manufacturing Assistance Center.
