Driven By Our Mission. Guided By Our Vision & Values.
The CAREER NEXUS Mission
The inspiration for Career Nexus took shape thanks to countless hours of vision-casting, thoughtful research and collaborative planning. At our core is the steady heartbeat of a unified mission, vision and values that keep Career Nexus moving forward toward a more inclusive and prepared workforce, and a greater community.
To build a prepared workforce that elevates the community by connecting businesses with career-ready interns for work-based experience that inspires stewardship and offers greater career choices for their future.
A true community initiative, Career Nexus is envisioned as a means of cultivating a workplace ecosystem that serves the needs of the workforce and employers and, ultimately, advances inclusive prosperity and wellbeing throughout the greater Fresno region.
This will be achieved by aligning and leveraging a network of partners across sectors who are engaged to connect the young adult workforce with enhanced career pathways through high-quality paid internships and other work-based learning opportunities. This partner network will also help remove barriers to employment and meet employers’ ongoing skilling, reskilling and upskilling needs.
Through our education/training partners, interns will be exposed to emerging technologies, important life and employability skills, and steps they can take to prepare for the future economy. All internships will be paid, which benefits the employer, intern and the community as a whole.
Career Nexus proudly operates under Fresno’s Community Values which have served as guiding principles for regional transformation efforts since 2000. These values serve to align the broader goals for inclusive prosperity and wellbeing and foster an atmosphere of fairness, respect and personal responsibility. Employers, education/training referral partners and interns participating with Career Nexus are committed to these values and to creating a culture based upon civic stewardship.
