Code Platoon’s team is always looking for innovative ways to spread the word about our program. Recently, our executive director, Rod Levy, and alumni Chad Mowbray, were interviewed for a segment through Working Nation entitled I Want That Job. Camera crews spoke with Mr. Levy from our classroom space in downtown Chicago and also traveled to Mr. Mowbray’s internship host, Motorola Solutions, to see him in action!
Working Nation is a fellow nonprofit with a mission to tell stories about solutions to the jobs skills gap that is threatening to disrupt our economy. They are raising this critical issue to the level of a national discussion to reach people and entities that can affect change, to connect the dots for companies and communities looking for solutions to their own workforce issues, and to identify for workers and job seekers where the jobs of the future will be.
I Want That Job is a digital series highlighting interesting jobs across the country, each offering a promising career path for early-career workers of all education levels. Code Platoon is honored to have been included during November 2019, when Working Nation is specifically focused on highlighting career opportunities for veterans and military families.
