Find Your Path to a Living-Wage Career

SJI supports job seekers in acquiring the skills, training, and support you need to enter a career that offers a living wage, benefits, and opportunities for advancement.

Our employment and training programs for Seattle and the Greater Puget Sound Region will help connect you to job training with the support of a career navigator — a community expert who will provide individualized career planning, resources, and strategies to support you in moving toward a living-wage career. Our programs are designed to help you develop your technical skills and performance skills, such as goal-setting, communication, and interview preparation.

All SJI pathway programs have the added benefit of Digital Bridge. This service provides free laptops, hotspots, and internet to participants in need, as well as access to culturally competent digital literacy training in multiple languages. Learn more about Digital Bridge here.
