About Career Action Resources, LLC

Creators of Best-Practice Job-Seeker Tools Used in Workforce,
Employment, & Career Services

Career Action Resources specializes in best-practice assessments and action planners used by workforce, employment, and career services to guide job seekers and the unemployed in getting hired.

With 20 years of experience in workforce development publishing, our seasoned career resources staff created Layoff-to-Employment Action Planner (LEAP) and Your Employment Search (YES).

LEAP and YES are helping thousands of job hunters across the USA assess their needs and create job search and reemployment plans. In a study for the U.S. Department of Labor, LEAP is the only assessment identified as an innovative best practice for reemployment.

For professionals in the public workforce system, LEAP and YES can help you deliver customer-focused and tailored career services under WIOA. Our tools guide both staff and participants in workshops, career coaching, Rapid Response, RESEAs, UI Intake, Individual Employment Plans (IEP), Individual Reemployment Plans (IRP), orientation meetings, TAA meetings, job clubs, job search and employment barriers assessment, and much more.

2020: The year began with historically low unemployment. After the pandemic hit, life changed dramatically for everyone, including the public workforce system and the people we serve. Now it's time to look ahead.

According to WorkforceGPS, a site sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor, "the way we provide services and assistance may look very different from now on....The keys to success will be flexibility and forward thinking in the way we serve our customers." 

WorkforceGPS is giving workforce professionals technical assistance and resources to connect individuals to available jobs and training.  As a starting place, they have organized Pathway to Recovery resources into the following categories: Job Seeker and Business Customer Service Delivery, Labor Market Information, Partnerships & Planning, and System Infrastructure & Capacity.

 Quick Start Action Planner, which aids workforce system stakeholders in preparing for economic recovery.
