PAIRIN announced a $4.36 million Series A for its solution that aims to support American governments, workforce agencies, and educational institutions to better serve the workforce in need. PAIRIN offers career planning and management, skills development, and training these agencies. They also offer help for displaced workers to navigate career and unemployment services offered by states, education, and workforce programs.
This brings PAIRIN’s total funding to $5.5 million. While we’ve noted the trend of merging skills training and education into the job board marketplace category as a good use of tech, this deal focused on helping the public sector serve their constituents with services reported to help them find a path to a job and stability is encouraging.
