The Indiana Governor’s Workforce Cabinet and Ivy Tech Community College are launching a statewide career coaching program for any Indiana resident. Built in collaboration with nonprofit InsideTrack, the service will provide up to four months of one-on-one career coaching.
“As we chart a path to full recovery from the economic crisis of the past year, it’s critically important that we provide individualized support to help workers not only get back on their feet, but ultimately emerge stronger as the pandemic subsides and we build the state economy of the future,” said PJ McGrew, executive director of the Governor’s Workforce Cabinet. “This work is about empowering working adults with the sort of skills and support they need to plan their next career move, identify the right training and education options, and stand out in today’s competitive job market.”
The partners say career coaches from InsideTrack will engage with unemployed and working adults to plan a career change, upskill in their current role, or identify career development resources available within the state.
“The economic shock of the pandemic may be starting to ease, but there are still thousands of talented individuals in our state in search of their next career steps,” said Chris Lowery, senior vice president of workforce, careers & adult strategy at Ivy Tech. “Community colleges are a vital component of the workforce infrastructure we have in place to support displaced and underemployed workers during this transition to economic recovery. This is an example of the innovative ways that we can help provide the programming and support to help individuals successfully transition back into the workforce.”
The service is available to all Indiana residents, including as an option to satisfy the work search requirement for Hoosiers receiving unemployment.
