The Triangle is a great place to begin and build a career. Some industries are growing so fast that they can’t get enough qualified people despite strong average pay. Career pathways can help you build a career in these industries no matter your starting point. Once you find an occupation you like, what’s important is obtaining skills that will move you to the next level.
Career pathways have been used in education for years to describe how someone moves through education, training, and on to a career. It is a system that creates multiple ways to enter the career pathway, places to exit and work, and ways to re-enter and pick up where you left off.
Because the workforce crosses geographical boundaries, the information on this site is good for all residents of the Triangle and surrounding counties. Students who find the information compelling can talk to a career development coordinator at their school. Job seekers can go to their local NCWorks Career Center for focused help.
Triangle Regional Pathways is a collaboration between Capital Area, Durham, and Kerr-Tar workforce development boards.
