Workforce Development Pathways

To help Californians prepare for and find the jobs they want in the post-COVID economy, Pleasanton Public Library was gifted from the California State Library, the CAreer Pathways package, free online tools that provide job training, skill building, test preparation, and professional development to public library users.

For information on the program, and detailed information about each resource, visit the California State Library's CAreer Pathways page. (Not all resources will be available through this library.)
