Capital Area Tech Knowledge E-Pathways

The Capital Area Tech Knowledge E-Pathways program is a career-transition program to help individuals plug into and advance along the Computer Science track and into careers in IT. The program addresses the need for education/career pathways with multiple options for participants to advance along a continuum of education/training and employment opportunities in information technology.

E-Pathways Student Testimonials

 

The e-Pathways program changed my life. The staff at e-Pathways and Capital Area Michigan Works (CAMW) were extremely supportive and provided a multitude of resources to help me succeed in the Associates in Science in Computer Science program at LCC. During my last semester I was overwhelmed with job offers. Some employers even tried to get me to quit the program and work for them. I was hired by Nexient (formerly known as Systems in Motion) as a Front-End Web Application developer and was able to finish my degree by taking night classes. In less than three months on the job, I was recognized by the company with the Accountable Award for being empowered to define solutions and delivering on our commitments on our project with NBCUniversal.

Before I entered the E-Pathways program I had some reservations about computer programming due to myths I had heard and read about it in the past. I was a little unsure of my abilities, not only to succeed in the computer information technology field, but also being a woman in this industry. However, after being in the program almost two years, I have come to find that this is a fantastic field for a woman. E-Pathways has provided me such a unique opportunity with measurable success and reachable goals. Sarah is an amazing coach that has empowered and supported me to succeed.  Thank you E-pathways!

I was looking for work and looking for a career change. ePathways came along at the right moment. At the completion of my program I was able to get an internship. Working with an employer who understood the program and me and my background was very useful, and subsequently, they hired me on for a full-time position.

What really sets the ePathways program apart is the 360 degree approach that it takes to prepare students for success.  Not only do you get to learn the subject matter, but there are seminars on networking, career development, resume building and mock interviews.  You have support from Lansing Community College faculty and staff in addition to support from CAMW and the local IT industry. Everyone involved wants each student in the program to be successful, and reaches out to help them do just that.  I am very thankful that I've had the opportunity to experience the program, and cross paths with all the kind and supportive people at LCC and CAMW!

I started in the E-Pathways program for Computer Programmer/Analyst. I completed my courses, participated in the networking events, and began an internship with the Board of Water & Light. My internship lasted 3 months. After my internship and my graduation in May, I began working full-time for BWL as an IT Support Analyst.
