trainingPennsylvania Profile ReEmployment Program (PREP) is Pennsylvania’s version of the federally mandated Worker Profiling and Reemployment Service system. It identifies unemployment compensation (UC) claimants who may need additional job skills, training or other reemployment services to find new employment. These services are provided through PREP.

Selection into PREP takes place when an individual files a new application for unemployment compensation and receives his or her first payment. UC claimant characteristics are compared using a UC profiling model to arrange the claimants on lists for call-in for PREP reemployment services.

PREP participants are provided orientation to the PREP program; assessment of their needs to include a career plan, job match and referral; and the use of the Career Resource Center. Other services available may include: job development, labor market information, résumé preparation assistance, career guidance, job search workshops, job clubs and/or education and training.

For more information on PREP, contact PA CareerLink at Hazleton at 570-459-3854.
