Chicago Career Tech Now Accepting Applications

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - EducationWhile Chicago’s unemployment numbers increased once again last month, thousands of job openings continue to go unfilled. The reason for the disparity is a “skills mismatch” –employers in Chicago are looking for skills that those currently seeking employment simply do not have. In response to this need, Chicago Career Tech (CCT) offers emerging and middle-income Chicago residents the training and hands-on learning needed to obtain jobs in high-demand technology careers.
