Technology skills critical for job seekers
June 16, 2011
In lean economic times the job market is cutthroat, prompting many unemployed adults to seek advanced degrees and technical training. According to the Arizona Star, a nonprofit in Tuscon, Arizona, recently received a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to bring more technology to its career services initiatives.
JobPath, an organization that helps out-of-work adults find suitable careers, was awarded $200,000 from the federal agency, reported the news source. Through the center's training program, immigrant workers may be able to find better jobs.
"We have a significant community in Tucson of immigrants or refugees who had a degree or a profession in their own country," Herminia Cubillos, executive director of JobPath, told the media outlet. "Many of them are cleaning toilets."
Career councilors with the nonprofit may find their efforts greatly aided by technology purchased with grant money, such as an ESL computer program, a STEM software program or a business projector.
The media outlet stated that, in some cases, people passing through the center's program receive enough technical knowledge to qualify for an associates degree in science, technology, engineering and math areas of study.
