Career Guides for International Professionals

We have identified four high-growth industries in Pennsylvania and developed detailed career guides for each industry: accountant, mechanical engineer, systems analyst, and teacher.

These guides outline the process for becoming a certified professional and provide information about various types of jobs within each field, regional employers who hire these professionals, salary ranges, and employment resources.

Guide for Entrepreneurs

We created a guide to provide practical information on how city store owners can protect themselves from violence and harassment and improve customer relations.
