Building a bridge to the future is the work of a joined community. Through Pipeline AZ, a revolutionary
platform, Greater Phoenix is optimizing how job seekers and companies connect in our ever-evolving,
competitive, and fast-paced job market.

With the combined strength of local businesses, as well as civic and education leadership, Pipeline AZ has
united our community through a public platform to not only ignite collaboration between workforce partners,
but empower a skilled and enriched talent pipeline for substantial regional growth and prosperity for all area

In recent years, the digitization of talent acquisition has left more and more people disengaged from the
workforce. The gap between companies and people seeking employment has only widened. For employers
in high-growth, high-demand sectors, filling open positions is increasingly difficult without a systematic
approach to effectively develop, identify, and match current and future demand for talent. Employers are left
to manually comb through piles of ill-matched résumés or scour the Internet in the hopes of finding the right

Today, thanks to the generous funding of the Maricopa County Industrial Development Authority (MCIDA),
Pipeline AZ will now provide the essential link between job seekers and employers this community needs,
establishing the region as a self-sustaining workforce ready to lead 21st-century careers. As the nation’s first
comprehensive, end-to-end talent optimization platform, Pipeline AZ is offered at no cost and provides
universal access to all area employers and job seekers, along with the capacity to fully integrate with the
region’s existing educational and workforce development resources.

Through the formation of dynamic skills-based communities utilizing the Pipeline AZ ecosystem to maintain
both awareness of job market developments and the professional skills required to ensure job readiness,
Pipeline AZ serves both job seekers and employers alike.

Once registered on the Pipeline AZ platform, participants are able to explore local career pathways or be
individually matched to jobs, internships, apprenticeships, and mentorships based on their current skills.
Pipeline AZ gives access to education and training programs that directly align to careers of interest, and
supports career pathway progression through connection to workforce offices and other organizations that
offer on-site guidance. Additional tools such as assesments for skills and interests, resume refinement
assistance, and profile creation across desktop and mobile devices are available.

Employers who register on the Pipeline AZ platform can create a profile page that highlights not only their
current employment opportunities, but unique information about upcoming events, perks and benefits, and
their company culture. Once an employer posts a position on the platform they are immediately matched with
potential candidates that align to the skills the employer designates are important. The services to both job
seekers and employers are offered at no charge.

Streamlining the pathway between talent supply and talent demand, Pipeline AZ is a true public-private
partnership designed to grow alongside the initiatives of today and tomorrow. Built for the community – by the
community and ensures our future at the not-so-far end of the bridge is a bright one indeed.
