    SCRANTON, Pa., April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- On behalf of Gov. Tom Ridge, Labor
 and Industry Executive Deputy Secretary Michael Acker today dedicated the
 Lackawanna County Team Pennsylvania CareerLink at 135 Franklin Ave.
     "We're putting our customers online, not in line -- whether they access
 services through the CareerLink Internet Service Site or at the Lackawanna
 County CareerLink," Acker said.  "And with many customers choosing to use the
 Internet services, CareerLink staff will be more available to assist those
 needing intensive personal service.
     "Gov. Ridge's CareerLink seamlessly delivers services to bring together
 job seekers, employers, training providers, and other key public- and private-
 sector partners.  Using today's cutting-edge Internet technology, we now are
 redefining customer service, expanding customer choice and making government
 truly responsive to the people who foot the bill."
     Central to CareerLink is its Internet Service Site -- accessed through the
 PA PowerPort at www.state.pa.us or directly at www.pacareerlink.state.pa.us --
 which provides around-the-clock access to services via the Internet.
     "The Ridge Administration has heard the message of the families of
 Pennsylvania," Acker said.  "They want less government, less paperwork and
 more convenience.  That is what CareerLink and other initiatives the
 Administration has undertaken are all about."
     The site offers 24-hour access to a wealth of information, including
 labor-market data; state and federal job banks; government services; veterans'
 employment services; and education and training programs.
     Job seekers can search for jobs, post resumes, access training
 opportunities, research the job market and much more.
     Employers can use the Internet Service Site to place job orders, access
 resumes, screen and test applicants, receive technical assistance, and much
 more.
     The web-based services will enhance customer service by adding this
 technology option to the array of one-on-one services that will continue to be
 available at local CareerLink centers.
