Will benefit job seekers and employers
ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (Aug. 7, 2015) — This week was the grand opening of the new Kentucky Career Center – Lincoln Trail and the Elizabethtown Hardin County Industrial Foundation at 233 Ring Road in Elizabethtown.
The new career center location enables seamless, enhanced services to job seekers and employers in a single location. Bringing these co-tenants under a single roof fosters stronger connections between workforce and economic development, positioning local communities to better meet workforce demands, create new career opportunities and encourage economic growth.
“This is a true one-stop center for developing a pipeline of skilled workers and economic development right here in Hardin County,” said Lt. Gov. Crit Luallen. She said the work of the career center is moving the state forward in preparing a workforce that companies cannot wait to hire.
Lincoln Trail Workforce Development Board member Mo Miller said the center is about creating opportunities for job seekers and ensuring our employers have the talent they need to succeed.
Elizabethtown Hardin County Industrial Foundation Board of Directors Chairman Greg Jenkins emphasized what the new facility symbolizes for employers and site selectors.
“Employers know available talent and their business’ growth and success go hand in hand,” Jenkins said. “Now, it’s even clearer that we recognize that very same thing.”
Kentucky Career Center – Lincoln Trail serves an eight-county region through the full-service career center in Elizabethtown and affiliate centers in Bardstown, Lebanon and Leitchfield, all of which have earned state certification.
