Enrollment program helps veterans find Connecticut jobs
Posted on August 4, 2016
A new program is helping veterans find Connecticut jobs.
Officials have announced an Advanced Manufacturing enrollment program specifically for veterans who register with CTDOL. To be eligible, veterans must register at www.cthires.com. Dedicated financial aid, scholarships, tuition reimbursement and training-related funding are readily available for veterans who apply. Connecticut state law also provides tuition waivers for honorably discharged veterans.
Connecticut veterans currently looking for a job, or a better job, are encouraged to enroll in CSCU’s Advanced Manufacturing certificate program.
The 10-month program trains students for careers in aerospace, defense, biomedical technology and other manufacturing fields offering full-time jobs with higher than average starting salaries.
CSCU’s advanced manufacturing program has 98% job placement upon completion, and often includes paid internships or apprenticeships. More information is available here http://www.ct.edu/makeithere and here http://bit.ly/2asSpGz.
Weekly emails will be sent to all veterans who register at www.cthires.com.
Once they respond, a dedicated customer service representative will guide them through the entire application process, including assistance with filling out financial aid and admissions forms. Customer service representatives will be also available seven days a week by telephone or live webchat.
“Connecticut veterans protected us. Let’s protect their futures. In less than a year, our veterans can not only have a job, but a start a career by completing one of our Advanced Manufacturing programs,” said CSCU President Ojakian. “In addition to a variety of financial assistance available to those who enroll, Connecticut state law provides tuition waivers for all honorably discharged veterans for any credit-bearing courses. Our hope is that as many veterans as possible take advantage of these opportunities.”
