Apr 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry

     MEDIA, Pa., April 20 /PRNewswire/ -- On behalf of Pennsylvania Gov. Tom
 Ridge, Labor and Industry Secretary Johnny J. Butler today dedicated the
 Delaware County Community College Team Pennsylvania CareerLink Center at 901
 South Media Line Road, Media.
     "We're putting our customers online, not in line -- whether they access
 services through the CareerLink Internet Service Site or at the Delaware
 County Community College CareerLink," Secretary Butler 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."
     Earlier in the day, Secretary Butler dedicated the Chester City Team
 Pennsylvania CareerLink Center in Chester at 701 Crosby St., Suite B.
     Central to CareerLink is its Internet Service Site -- accessed through the
 Pennsylvania website 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 from the taxpayers of
 Pennsylvania," Secretary Butler 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.
