The New York City Labor Market Information Service (NYC LMIS) has put together some great career maps that show possible projections for cooks, home health aides and medical assistants. Take a look at the career maps below, but also click on their corresponding links for more detailed information about those career fields.
On Thursday, December 4th, 2014 CEWD presented at the 13th Annual CUNY IT Conference at John Jay College. The presentation was moderated by Dr. Edgar Troudt, CEWD Director of Technology, with speakers including Christopher Pileggi, Min-Kyung Park, Gillian Gooding, Christine Zagari-LoPorto and Jessie Cinelli (read our full bios here).

CCP is a US Department of Labor TAACCCT Round 1 grant program that has been wildly successful since we began running programs in 2011. Our marketing team was recently recognized for a successful marketing campaign that helped bring in under- and un-employed New Yorkers. Earlier this year, CCP was highlighted by Tom Hilliard at the Center for an Urban Future as a program that needs to be “scaled up” and have a “deeper coordination with city workforce, education and youth development agencies” to continue providing these much-needed services. At KCC, our Culinary Arts graduates have been led to great success even after leaving CCP.
Come meet CEWD staff as we talk “Workforce Development Supported By Strategic IT Investments” at the CUNY IT Conference. The panel, including Edgar Troudt, Babette Audant, Christoper Pileggi, Gillian Gooding, Min-Kyung Park, Christine Zagari-LoPorto and Jessie Cinelli (Don’t know us? Check us out here), will discuss how CEWD harnesses smart information technology in the areas of Participant Tracking, Data Quality Assurance, Trends Analysis, Partner Management and Outreach. Our presentation will cover a broad range of topics from participant tracking and data analysis to marketing and communications in use throughout all of our programs.
Conference registration is free so sign up today and join us on Thursday, December 4th at 2:15 pm at John Jay College. See you at the conference!
CUNY CareerPATH‘s marketing team, led by Christine Zagari-LoPorto at Kingsborough Community College, was just awarded the James C. Hall Program Award for Marketing from the Continuing Education Association of New York (CEANY)! This recognition highlights CCPs marketing efforts in print, online, and direct outreach. Utilizing methods that directly targeted populations who would benefit the most from our services (local neighborhood newspapers for out of work adults, young adults using social media, text notifications, local and regional job fairs, etc.), CCP far exceeded original enrollment outcome goals. This award recognizes the efforts of CUNY CareerPATH’s lead marketing team who collaborated with the CUNY Central Office and the other consortium colleges to develop innovative campaigns that helped CCP succeed.
The full award will be announced in early November at CEANY’s 2014 Annual Conference in Syracuse, NY.
Since 2006, CEWD at Kingsborough has developed successful workforce training programs that meet the needs of un- and under-employed New Yorkers. Check out this infographic showcasing our most significant programs and awards:

On April 2, 2014 Kingsborough Community College held its 2nd annual Sugar Whiz Competition where select Culinary Arts students were invited to present their own take on a macaron and plated dish combination to attendees. Attendees voted on best dishes and out of three available winning slots, two were CUNY CareerPATH graduates!
Daw’ud Lee and Giacomo Boncimino both came to CUNY CareerPATH looking to expand their knowledge in the Culinary Field. Though their experiences differed, both men shared the same passion. Upon successful completion of CCP, both immediately expressed interest in continuing their education in KCC’s culinary department and, facilitated by their CUNY CareerPATH educational adviser, they were able to enroll. With two semesters under their belts, Daw’ud and Giacomo are each making great strides in the culinary department and playing an active role in student life. Winning the Sugar Whiz competition is only one step in the many goals both Daw’ud and Giacomo will accomplish. CUNY CareerPath is very proud to have them as graduates and brand ambassadors, We are sure this is not the last we will hear of them.
