“My experience with the Skills for Hire program and the team has been the best online education course experience I’ve had – and I’m constantly upgrading my skills. The support is second to none. The educational content is relevant and easy to access on and off-line. The added bonus of the Career Kickstarter program was very helpful in shaping my job search strategies.”

“I have enjoyed the Skills for Hire program very much. In addition to the upgrade of our technical skills, we’ve had access to webinars and round tables that enhance the possibility of getting a job. In particular, I really enjoyed the employer panel where we had the chance to listen to what experts think about people changing careers or just trying to update their skills. From the employer panel I was able to start a relationship to extend my network and, hopefully, secure a job. I would highly
recommend the program to anyone looking for a pivot in their careers. Thank you so much.”
