Meet the Workforce Professionals Credential Alumni


“The knowledge that CJC provides allows CBO’s and their staff to develop a deep understanding of best practices for successful partnerships between the job seeker and the employer.”

David Preciado Jr., Class of 2019

“Without continual growth and progress, words like improvement, achievement and success have no meaning. CJC provided me with the tools to become the bridge toward individual’s success.”

Keona Owens, Class of 2019

“Coming from the homeless service sector, employment supports and skills are tough to come by. The skills I picked up through the cohort are essential to helping homeless jobseekers find good careers and maintain housing”

“In addition to the great research and best practices CJC shared with me, I feel better equipped to lead others and establish a more professional relationship with my participants because of the Workforce Professionals Credential.”

“The future of workforce development is in good hands thanks to the works of CJC!”

Jennifer Brown, Class of 2019

“Being a part of the Workforce Professional Credential course opened my mind to new ways and methods of delivering the best services to my participants. We learned everything from Labor Market Trends and proper ways to manage case notes to how to pitch to a potential employer and how to create effective referral systems. Overall, this credential challenged me to dissect, question and redesign my approach to Workforce Development and because of this I am a better professional, thank you CJC!”

Latisha Brandon, Class of 2019

“The most valuable part of this cohort was being able to develop strong relationships with cohort members. This allowed me space to share my struggles and successes with the result of being able to provide and receive support, advice, resources, and helped me develop a strong network.”

Fatima Gomez, Class of 2019

“Behind every strong workforce there is a dedicated community of professionals committed to improving people’s lives. I am honored to have completed the CJC cohort with them.”
