Whether you're 15 or 35, student or graduate, Work and Play in
Northeast PA has been created just for you.
Work and Play in Northeast PA was developed through the PA Stay
Invent the Future program and funded by the Pennsylvania Department
of Community and Economic Development. As part of this program,
over forty agencies representing the seven counties of Northeast
PA have joined together to provide you with information on career
opportunities and the quality life experience that can be enjoyed
in this area.
In this web site, you will learn more about the seven counties
of Northeast PA. More importantly, you will find out about "work"
and job opportunities that await you, learn about job trends in
the region, see what employers are looking for, and read about successful
people your age who are doing well in this area. You will also discover
resources that will help you locate information about our colleges
and universities, technical schools, business schools, and training
programs. Highlighted Northeast PA "Hot Jobs" can be found
in this web site, as well.
In addition to great job opportunities, Northeast PA offers many
exciting places to "play". Enjoy nightclubs, professional
sports, whitewater rapids, racetracks, ski slopes, resorts, mountains,
restaurants, shopping, theatres, historical sites, concert halls,
and much more. The affordable advantage of renting an apartment
or buying a home in the region also make Northeast PA the perfect
place to live.
On behalf of all Pennsylvanians, I welcome you to explore the wealth
of opportunity that thrives in Northeast PA. I hope you will join
us and Invent the Future.
