PA CareerLink® Montgomery County
PA CareerLink® UPdates as of 7/31/2020
Pennsylvania’s Shared-Work Program allows employers to retain their workforce during a temporary slowdown and then quickly ramp up operations without the expense of recruiting, hiring and training new employees. At the same time, Shared-Work helps to protect employees from the financial hardship of a full layoff. For more information, please visit: https://www.uc.pa.gov/employers-uc-services-uc-tax/shared-work/Pages/default.aspx
We are moving! We plan on opening to the public, by appointment only for safety purposes, on August 17th, 2020 in our new location! While Unemployment Compensation will no longer have a designated phone line inside PA CareerLinks statewide, we are still here to help in any way we can.

While the PA CareerLink® Montgomery County remains closed to the public, staff are fully operational remotely and are providing services to dislocated workers and employers impacted by COVID-19. While we are unable to use our available funding to provide Needs Based Payments specific to the COVID-19 layoffs, we have the following available now:
- General Unemployment Compensation claim guidance and support (we do not determine eligibility but can help answer questions)
- Career Counseling
- A full menu of online workshops (all in-person workshops have been moved online)
- Short-term online training programs (we are actively working with all of our providers to develop online approved programs quickly and have several ready to go now)
- Support services which can include direct service referrals through our partnership with Community Connections, assistance with transportation (as needed), supplies/equipment needed for training or employment, and other supports needed to successfully complete their online training and enter employment.
Please contact a staff member below and someone will return your call/email as soon as possible.
