Grow Clinton launches Career Access Program

Grow Clinton

CLINTON, Iowa – The Grow Clinton organization has launched a program that connects students and adults with local employers through various career exploration events.

The Career Access Program (CAP) is a partnership with regional K-12 schools and member businesses. The program features facility tours, employer presentations, registered apprenticeships and other career exploration events.

Also, the most recent addition to the CAP is an application portal available on Grow Clinton’s website. Active job-seekers can upload their resumes, complete an online form, and submit their information to Grow Clinton. 

All completed applications will be emailed to the director of Workforce Development and Talent Attraction at Grow Clinton, and forwarded to a growing list of local employers.

“We created an easy method of sharing resumes and applicant contact information with employers. Understanding that the demand for talent is strong, we now have a way of aiding job seekers and employers by serving as a conduit,” said Stacy Borgeson, Grow Clinton’s director of Workforce Development and Talent Attraction.

To upload your resume to the CAP application portal, visit https://www.growclinton.com/career-access.

Companies and employers interested in hosting student tours or connecting with job seekers should email Ms. Borgeson at sborgeson@growclinton.com.

Grow Clinton also has a strong working relationship with the Clinton Community College, identifying pathways for students and those looking for a career change to prepare themselves for various employment opportunities in the Clinton area. 

The recent opening of the college’s Career Advancement Center – serving Clinton and the surrounding communities – will act as a pipeline for talent, allowing employers to recruit and train for in-demand skill sets, according to Grow Clinton officials.
