Seattle Jobs Initiative’s goal is to help job seekers get the skills, education and support they need to enter a career that offers good wages, benefits and opportunities for advancement.

SJI’s primary program, CareerConnect, offers short-term, industry-specific training to entry-level job seekers in the Healthcare and Manufacturing sectors. Our objective is to help participants quickly gain skills and employment with an employer partner who is invested in their career advancement. Participants are supported every step of the way by a Career Navigator — a community expert in helping people to prepare for, enroll and succeed in training courses, as well as access support services and employment opportunities.
