MEXICO — A global pandemic can’t stop the success of career and technical education students at the Center for Instruction, Technology and Innovation, as numerous students solidified employment in local industry even before graduation.
“Despite the challenges presented by COVID-19, we were able to provide high quality, hands-on learning opportunities for students thanks to our creative instructors and partnerships with local businesses,” said CiTi Work-based Learning Coordinator Carol Taormina.
The CiTi Career Center not only helps secure internship and co-op work experiences for CTE students, but also works one-on-one with students to build their resume and job seeking skills.
