Crain’s New York Business, a publication that provides analysis and opinion on how to navigate New York’s business and political landscape, featured our Bridge to Tech program in its August 2 “Employers bet hiring for skills, not degrees, could level the playing field” article.
Crain’s reporter Cara Eisenpress interview Dominique Hamilton, a recent Bridge to Tech graduate. The article describes how Goodwill’s Bridge to Tech’s services help job seekers get their skills. The program serves 100 people a year, one-quarter of whom are 45 or older and 70% of whom are Black. More than eight in 10 graduates have found full-time jobs afterwards, and many complete certificates like the Google IT credential as part of the program.
