Subsequently, searching for a job seems to have become an occupation in itself these days. Candidates invest time and energy into networking (both online and in real-life) and applying via online platforms such as LinkedIn, Monster, USAJobs and similar sites.

The federal government and state of Connecticut choose the Naugatuck Valley Community College, also referred to as the NVCC, along with 270 other schools to be primary recipients of a massive grant program. The support from this grant amounts to no less than $15 million to be spread out among the schools. Lawmakers passed this bill in order to assist Connecticut schools in building a better manufacturing job training programming for their students. With help from the new grant, the Naugatuck Valley Community College job training program should benefit both students and employers alike. The grant program focuses on several industries by attempting to better prepare students with necessary job skills for the future. The $1,706,025 grant that NVCC will receive specifically targets vocational and technical high school students in conjunction to the manufacturing industry. NVCC President Daisy Cocco De Filippis stated that the school will team up with Abbott Tech to provide an Advanced Manufacturing Technology certificate at the school’s Danbury location. Other plans for spending the money at NVCC include creating a ‘third semester’ course at Waterbury-based Kaynor Tech.

Some of you may be unfamiliar with this practice where companies garnish American wages due to massive credit debt. A report published by NPR and ProPublica earlier this month (September), shows that the effects of American debt accrued during the economic recession continues to impact borrowers into the present. According to the piece, credit companies are garnishing the wages of ten percent of Americans between the ages of 35 to 44.
