Upskill Yourself Or Your Workforce For FREE Through Project PIVOT!

Project PIVOT is a unique, collaborative program created and launched by Wilkes Barre Connect – the entrepreneurial and economic development arm of the Greater Wyoming Valley Chamber of Commerce – that aims to provide accelerated workforce training and upskilling opportunities for workers aligning with the historic and seismic industry shifts caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Get FREE access to 17,000+ online LinkedIn Learning courses until October 2022!

Participants of this pilot program will gain FREE access to 17,000+ online LinkedIn Learning courses until October 2022 as a means of developing themselves professionally and upskilling in the careers and fields of their choice. This program is also designed to work directly with businesses in Luzerne County to provide their employees with the skills they need to grow within their companies. In addition to free LinkedIn Learning access for their staff, businesses who participate in the pilot program with their employees will have the opportunity to work directly with our Project PIVOT team and the team at LinkedIn Learning to develop a specially-tailored pathway that is specific to their company and employee needs. This will help them to take their current workforce to the next level in their skillset, and to address any educational gaps their team may be experiencing.

Besides the incredible benefit of gaining free access to the world’s largest professional network, Project PIVOT is also partnering with the PA CareerLink® and our Luzerne County academic institutions to offer a seamless continuum of services to users. For individuals, this includes hands-on classroom instruction, resume and cover letter writing, hot jobs notifications, mock interviews, and more. For businesses, this includes hiring, training, and retention services.
