Happy Endings for NJ's Unemployed: Grant-Funded Training Courses Provide Practical Skills & New Opportunities

Photo shows students in the Rutgers Professional Golf Turf Management School's Three-Week Preparatory Short Course learn about good golf course design in the field from legendary architect, Stephen Kay, at the Rutgers University Golf Course.

The first part of Sergio Sosa’s story is far too familiar: the Union City resident was inches away from earning his Master’s degree in Biology from Rutgers, and was transitioning from full-time student to full-time assistant-in-training at a golf course. Just when he thought everything was falling into place, Sosa was laid off from his job in late 2012.

Yet by March 2013, Sosa (with degree in hand) was gainfully employed as Assistant Superintendent at two popular New York City-owned golf courses.

Sosa credits the Rutgers Office of Continuing Professional Education (OCPE) and a grant from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (DOL) for helping him get there.
