Initiatives - Business Operations Occupations and Cybersecurity Occupations

Each year we add more career pathways information to CareersInColorado.com. We are currently organizing the career pathways systems information for cybersecurity and business operations occupations for publication on CareersInColorado in Jun 2018.

To prepare and publish the information, CWDC:

  1. Convenes regional forums for businesses to prioritize their cybersecurity and business operations needs
  2. Gathers information on career pathways for cybersecurity and business operations in Colorado
  3. Publishes the career pathways information via CareersInColorado.com
