Olympio W., Cleveland job seeker training at Cuyahoga Community College

“When I was in high school, I did a program called Urban League. After I graduated, I was in a college course for Occupational Therapy and I didn’t really enjoy it that much. So I had hit [Urban League of Greater Cleveland coach] Nate Phillips back up about different opportunities about machining and manufacturing, and how I could get my foot in the door because it was what I had liked to do. I did the program, I passed the first part of the program, I passed the program, and now I’m on my way to be a CNC Machiner.”

Linda M., Cleveland graduate of We Can Code It

“I would not have been able to take [the We Can Code It] bootcamp if it weren’t for the tuition reimbursement. I was unemployed, so all I was getting was the unemployment and there was no way that I could afford the tuition. So, by making that accessible, I had to pay a portion of it, but I feel like it was money so well spent. I feel like We Can Code It took the worst year of my life and turned it around.”

Marté S., Cleveland Tech Elevator graduate now employed full time

“I was put in front of a several employers and a lot of them had expressed interest, whether they had positions available or not, they definitely expressed interest. The help as far as the [Tech Elevator] Pathway program and the [employer] matchmaking, that made a huge difference, and I think that made the difference that gave me the chance or, at least, presented me the opportunity and took it, to get employed at Gainwell.”

Allison

“I had been applying for jobs all over the place, and my training coach helped me find my current role in less than two months. Thanks to the initiative, I am now a Patient Access Representative at the University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center. This is a full-time position with great benefits and vacation time, and there’s a clear path to becoming a team lead. Before this experience, my mental health was suffering, but now my overall outlook is improved.”

Allison F., Cleveland job seeker now employed full time

“I interviewed and got the job. Now I’m a line operator at Mace Security. It’s a full-time position with a good owner and a lot of good people working there. I’m working the third shift which is good for me because I have kids and I’m attending classes to add to my manufacturing skills.”

Will S., Cleveland job seeker now employed full-time

Jan Cooper

“I was already researching boot camps when my career coach told me about their collaboration with Tech Elevator. Tech Elevator’s high review scores were appealing, and the training grant made enrollment feasible.”

Jan C., Cleveland Tech Elevator Bootcamp graduate

“Before the pandemic, I was performing well in my career field. Then COVID hit. At first, I was just furloughed but then my job went away. And it wasn’t coming back. I attended an Ohio To Work information session and learned about the We Can Code It program. I knew another opportunity like this would never come along again. I was able to get scholarships through Ohio To Work and We Can Code It, so there were no costs to me except books.”
