Over the last year, thousands of Coloradans found themselves applying for unemployment for the first time. While many have scrambled to find new jobs in their old fields, others used the unexpected break to explore other opportunities.
Many who were forced to find new jobs used the last year as a chance to learn new skills. Technical Colleges like Emily Griffith are training a post-Covid workforce.
“The pandemic actually gave people time to think about what they want to do for their future. People are coming in for a number of reasons.
