Career Pathways Program

Career Pathways Program

Career Pathways is no longer enrolling new participants. Please visit our CareerConnect program page for current opportunities. 

Seattle Jobs Initiative’s Career Pathways Program provides linked short-term and longer-term training at area community colleges in four industry sectors: Automotive/Trade/Logistics, Healthcare, Office Occupations/MOP, and Manufacturing. The objective of Career Pathways is to help participants advance to a one- or two-year college credential that will provide them with excellent opportunities for a well-paying career in their chosen industry sector.

The Career Pathways design is based upon SJI’s expertise helping individuals successfully meet the many challenges they may face on the road to acquiring more skills and education and a living-wage career. Participants benefit from the combined know-how of our community college partners in providing quality training and education and our community-based organization partners in offering coaching, support and connections to employers.

What makes Career Pathways especially unique is our Career Navigators. Navigators are professionals experienced in serving the community that have specialized knowledge of community colleges as well as the specific industry sectors on which we focus. They work closely with participants to help them prepare for college, select the right college program, complete the enrollment process and secure financial aid, access support services, and meet their goals of a college credential and a well-paying career.

To learn if you are eligible for Career Pathways, view SJI’s Eligibility Requirements. You can also view our Training Calendar to see when SJI’s cohort classes start.
