Workforce staff are able to create individualized employment plans, refer career seekers to partners and eligible training providers, and track participant activities through an intuitive administrator dashboard.

With Career EDGE, states can easily track grants and funding, in order to monitor spending on the participant, case manager, region and program level. Career EDGE’s employer portal allows employers to post open positions, search eligible candidates, and host exclusive hiring events with virtual interview pre-screening. Upon enrollment, career seekers gain access to the Career EDGE work readiness platform, featuring assessments, essential skills modules, industry exploration, professional development training, resume building, and interview simulation training.

They also have access to the labor exchange, where they are matched to their most compatible career positions, track and measure participant outcomes, exits and case closures, and generate federally required PIRL reports, along with other state, local and grant specific reports. Our sophisticated framework allows for data migration from legacy systems, while eliminating paper, spreadsheets and other databases.
