About the Site
Why, Who and How
The Financial Services industry is vital to New York City and the surrounding area. The industry provides thousands of jobs, millions in tax revenue, and is a key part of the character of NYC. To keep Financial Services the thriving industry it is today, thousands of motivated, enthusiastic workers will be needed over the coming years. To that end, this site was created to inform students and job seekers about this exciting industry and help them get the education they need to prepare for a fulfilling long-term career in Financial Services.
This site was made possible by the work of many dedicated individuals who want to see people get the education and training they need to achieve great careers. This included representatives from many organizations, and community college representatives, and community advisors and educators.
The New York City Employment & Training Coalition has long been an essential voice for workforce providers in New York City and for building a strong workforce system. As a key project partner, the NYCETC was and is a vital part of building this site.
The new localhost the City University of New York (CUNY) will play an important role in engaging project partners, pushing system change and keeping the site updated in the future.
JPMorgan Chase has committed $250 million to a five-year effort to help specific geographic regions build a demand-driven workforce system and prepare youth and adults for careers in high demand, middle-skill occupations. Part of this investment includes the resources that make this site possible.
JPMorgan Chase partnered with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) on the convening of industry, project execution and development of this visually-engaging and information-packed career resource. JPMC trusted CAEL's management and proven process in all project phases, from discovery to outreach.
