Always remember, at GRCC, you are surrounded by people who want you to be successful and are ready to walk with you on your educational pathway. We are here to help!
Meet Juan Cisneros Fonseca. Juan is here to help you with the enrollment process for any of the college’s seven job training programs.
“I will be the first face students see when walking into the Leslie E. Tassell M-TEC,” Juan shared.
“As a former student at GRCC, I understand that starting a new program can be a little intimidating and stressful. My job is to ease that stress by helping students enroll. I will assist in filling out the application, and connect them with a career coach to discuss the next steps in the enrollment process and financial aid.”
Job training programs are hands-on, run for approximately 20 weeks, and students attend class for 34 hours each week. Graduates are in high demand for entry-level positions such as automotive technician, computer support technician, construction electrical, machinist-CNC technician, medical assistant, residential construction, and welding-fabrication technician.
“Seeing a student graduate and find employment in their field is a satisfying feeling,” Juan said. “These Job Training courses give students a chance to enter the workforce and make good wages.”
Before stepping into his current position, Juan earned a Computer Support Specialist Associate Degree from GRCC, worked in adult education and then helped to coordinate the GRCC Summer Learning Academy program for rising high school seniors. Now, helping students is Juan’s number one priority, and is what motivates him at work.
Most Job Training programs enroll new participants every other month, and information sessions are currently being held in person. If you know someone who may be interested, have them sign up for an information session today at grcc.edu/JobTraining, and have them ask for Juan when they get there!
