Greater Lafayette Commerce


Career Opporunities

Project overview

Career+™ is defined as a locally available, in-demand, high-wage job with a fully funded college education. Career+™ develops work-ready students prepared for area high-wage, in-demand careers, and the opportunity to pursue higher levels of debt-free education through employer and state funded tuition programs. 

Skyepack partnered with the Greater Lafayette Commerce to improve student access to employers in the West Lafayette community. Participating area schools, Ivy Tech, and regional employers now have access to an ecosystem that helps students “connect the dots” between their education and a career.  By aligning education standards with high-demand skills, the Greater Lafayette Career+™ Ecosystem will enhance and grow local and regional opportunities for students in grades K-12.

Skyepack worked closely with the Greater Lafayette Commerce to design, develop, and launch the program, which includes a user-friendly platform that allows users to easily navigate through the various resources and tools available.

Career Plus Pathways has already had a significant impact on the Greater Lafayette community.

It has also helped local employers fill critical workforce gaps and build a strong, skilled workforce for the region’s future growth and success.
