If you’re looking to make a career change on a budget, we have good news for you. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, or WIOA, was signed into law in 2014, and offers grants up to $4,000 to cover certification training programs for eligible job seekers.
Broadly speaking, these grants are aimed at helping the under and unemployed train for new and improved careers.
The WIOA program can be a fantastic opportunity if you’re a dislocated worker, have been terminated or laid off or you are/have been eligible for unemployment compensation. A WIOA grant opens the door to affordable, in-demand career training that can set you on the path to financial and professional success.
If you’re choosing a career in healthcare, you’re making a smart decision. The current trends in healthcare mean favorable conditions for job hunting and professional growth.
The healthcare field is the fastest growing industry in the United States, according to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics. It's expected to grow by 15% over the coming decade.
This explosive growth is partly tied to the broad spectrum of jobs included in the field. Whether you’re interested in patient-facing work, office work, or a technical position, you’ll have a variety of quality opportunities to pick from.
