Grant Associates Studies Partnership Opportunities with Local Colleges

Grant Associates has completed the first phase of a research project that examines how New York City’s colleges can be tapped to fill higher wage professional jobs that our business customers are listing with us. In conducting this study, 23 representatives of 16 two-year, four-year and continuing education programs at public, private and proprietary schools were interviewed. As a next step, Grant Associates will engage several area colleges to discuss ways that the higher education and workforce systems can partner to place graduates and alumni in high level jobs, and simultaneously provide the City’s businesses with the skilled and educated applicants they require.
