Career Advancement Academy Program administrator says IC³ has given participants a ‘competitive edge’ among job candidates for almost 10 years

At a trade conference in 2000, Jackie Mayhue discovered a way she could distinguish her academy’s graduates in a crowded and competitive 21st Century workforce.
