ConnectKentucky, Thorn Hill Education Center Announce Partnership to Bring Jobs Program to Frankfort
Innovative Digital Works offers training in 21st century job skills
Frankfort, KY - ConnectKentucky is bringing the innovative Digital Works program to Kentucky, partnering with Thorn Hill Education Center to create a Digital Works program at Thorn Hill's Frankfort location at 700 Leslie Avenue.
Digital Works, an initiative of ConnectKentucky parent organization Connected Nation, helps connect people to twenty-first century jobs by offering customer service and technology training, while utilizing broadband technology for inbound customer service for global corporations. At the end of training, workers log in to work as “inbound customer service representatives.” The training provides continued mentoring with opportunities for advanced placement for upward mobility. This is work that can be done from home or at the Digital Works center. The program, launched in June 2013 in Ohio, has already placed about 200 Ohioans into jobs, with many more expected in the coming months.
