Mayor Rahm Emanuel and City Colleges of Chicago Chancellor Cheryl Hyman unveiled the newest industry sectors in the College to Careers Programs: Information Technology, Advanced Manufacturing, and Culinary/Hospitality.

College to Careers is designed to bring together industry leaders with faculty and staff to develop curriculum that best prepare City Colleges students for positions in high-demand job industries, where tens of thousands of jobs are currently going unfilled. Through this initiative, City Colleges of Chicago aims to fill — and end — the skills gap by developing and utilizing a highly skilled local workforce.

The announcement was made last week at the Richard J. Daley College. Several of their  newest industry partners joined to show their commitment to the effort. These partners include Cisco, IBM, Microsoft, Motorola Solutions, and Verizon Wireless in Information Technology; Solo Cup, WaterSaver Faucet, Arrow Gear, GC America, Kay Manufacturing, Northstar Aerospace, UPS, and Lincoln Electric in Advanced Manufacturing; and Hyatt Hotels and Resorts, InterContinental Chicago, Aramark, the Illinois Restaurant Association, and Jimmy Bannos, Sr. (Heaven on Seven and Purple Pig restaurants) in Hospitality/Culinary.

College to Careers offers a great opportunity for those seeking new educational pathways to start or advance in a career.
