RE: “Lots of jobs, if you have the skills” [News, Mar. 1]:

Really glad to see this article and to consider how to build strong and educated citizens. Community College of Vermont and the Six College Collaborative in Windham County are places you might find support to talk about classes, internships, certificates, and degrees to make Vermont a place to live, work, and thrive.

If it love it here, let us help you find options that work for you. Come to CCV and talk with our career consultant, Charity Houghton, and/or our academic advisors, Pam Bullock and me. We’d be glad to help with school and work and how to bring them together.
