CAREER ACCELERATION NETWORK

he Career Acceleration Network (CAN) is an innovative partnership between Greater Louisville Inc. (GLI), employers, community organizations, workforce partners, and training institutions with a goal to connect employers and job seekers and to create a pathway to a livable, family-supporting wage.

GLI has brought entry-level and secondary employers together (from $9/hour to $31+/hour) to create pathways for you to access jobs while also pursuing upskilling or reskilling training to get you ready for the next phase.

GLI collaborates with our workforce partners to identify resources to help you be prepared to pursue a career pathway in business services, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, or technology, increasing your hourly earnings along the way.

INTERNSHIPS

As a community, we need to be strategic in how we build our talent pipelines to produce the best possible workforce and make gains on our peer cities. Quality internship programs are an integral part of building future talent. If your company is looking for assistance in building an internship program, we can help.

In addition to the work-based learning students receive with internship programs, GLI has launched Finding You in Lou, a professional and leadership development program geared to college students who are enrolled in an internship. Our goal is to provide students with information on and access to community leaders and stakeholders, so they can see what post-collegiate career opportunities exist in Louisville.
