“I love what you do at Norwalk Community College.
Norwalk is an institution I really care about.” – Joe Connolly
CBS NewsRadio 880 Business Anchor Joe Connolly moderated a panel discussion on Jobs and Hiring on September 22. Open to the public, the free event drew nearly 200 attendees from throughout Connecticut and New York. It featured five NCC graduates of short-term certificate programs talking about how they transformed their lives in one year or less.
The panelists were Andre Aiken (Exercise Science Certificate), Christine Neno (Graphic Design Certificate), Toni Rumbaoa (Culinary Arts Certificate), Anne Marie Castro (Phlebotomy Certificate) and Kim Hyde (noncredit Real Estate program). Professional employment recruiters Lisa Grant and Maureen Mackey, and four employers who hired the NCC graduates, also participated. Connolly lead the discussion on how workers today can position themselves for making a career change, upgrading their skills, or finding a job after becoming unemployed.
The event was funded by the Norwalk Community College Foundation.
