About Us
PA CareerLink® of Lancaster County was formed in 2000 when 14 employment, social service and educational organizations agreed to work together as one entity at its current Liberty Place location. The PA CareerLink® ties together hundreds of County residents who come to the PA CareerLink® weekly to search for jobs, upgrade their skills, look for new careers and find Lancaster County businesses that want to hire them.
