Show & Tell: The potential benefits of National Apprenticeship Week

Robert Asaro-Angelo is New Jersey’s commissioner of the Department of Labor & Workforce Development.

During National Apprenticeship Week recently, he talked about the potential benefits of these programs.

New Jersey is leading the way in our drive to prove that the successful earn-while-you-learn model of apprenticeship conceptualized by the building trades works. In this short time, we have already proven how this career path can make an impact in health care, science and technology, human resources, and countless other nontraditional sectors, which is mutually beneficial for everyone in the equation.”
