Workforce Development: Career in a Year

In this episode of Talent Talk we hear all about career and technical education from Yolanda Flores. Yolanda currently works at Lorenzo Walker Technical College as the Administrative Director. She explains to us what exactly technical colleges are and the benefits they have for students in the Southwest Florida community, and why it is important for students to pursue a career in the technical pathways. Yolanda also shares with us some of the most popular programs at Lorenzo Walker, both in and out of the health science field. Although technical colleges do offer a variety of opportunities and benefits for students, some of them are facing challenges, and Yolanda tells us how we can help. Listen to this podcast to find out more about some of the fields that are in high demand in the Southwest Florida region, and how stacking credentials is economically advantageous.
