"My professional life has changed dramatically since receiving tuition assistance through CareerSource Broward. I previously worked as a network engineer with experience in some areas, but was seeking to upgrade my professional skills so that I could become more competitive in the workforce. With the help of CareerSource Broward, I was able to pay for the education and training I needed to pursue my career goals. Once I included this training on my resume, a plethora of new opportunities opened up to me, and soon after, I accepted an offer from a software company based in Fort Lauderdale, where I was able to use the new skills I learned along the way, such as Cisco routing and switches and network architecture. – C.M., CareerSource Broward Customer
