EXTON — PA CareerLink Chester County is expanding the virtual services provided to jobseekers and employers and will offer limited on-site services by appointment only as of July 6.

PA CareerLink Chester County has provided essential virtual services for jobseekers and employers since mid-March when statewide mitigation efforts began to slow the spread of COVID-19. Moving to the green phase for COVID-19 is allowing some services to resume at the PA CareerLink Chester County offices at 479 Thomas Jones Way in Exton.
