Next Level Jobs Training

Marketing moves fast. That is especially true when it comes to digital marketing. As a business owner it is important that you and your employees are trained on the latest tools and technology.

So this week, Jennifer Denney and Lorraine Ball  invited Matt Nettleton to join them for a conversation about the Next Level Jobs Program.

What is the Next Level Jobs Program? 

Next Level Jobs is a program funded by the state of Indiana, provides free state-wide training in high-paying, in-demand industries.

For Indiana employers, Next Level Jobs provides reimbursements up to $50,000 to train employees in these high-growth fields.

How to Qualify

  • Have a high school diploma (or equivalent) but less than a college degree
  • Eligible for state financial aid (for certain programs and providers)

The state does not have an unlimited pot of money.  There is a deadline to apply, so don’t delay.  If you have employees, now is a great time to getthem trainied.
