CDG is best known for helping people with job search and career counseling, referrals to free training and volunteer work or internships particularly as ways to move into better jobs or careers.

CDG's mission is to help computer, telecommunications and new media professionals become more productive and engaged in their work and its uses, through appropriate career direction and management, education and training, volunteering and internships

What CDG Is and Does

CDG has helped thousands of people to find jobs, career direction, education and training, volunteer work and internships, supportive services and entitlement programs. CDG serves candidates, employers, search firms, and the institutions and professionals who serve them. CDG covers the entire spectrum of work, from full-time permanent employment to part-time, consulting or temporary work, volunteer work and internship programs, as well as workforce development, entrepreneurship, business and economic development, and employment-related aspects of government and other entitlement and social-service programs for populations including persons with disabilities, immigrants, and the formerly incarcerated, and in many fields including emergency preparedness and disaster recovery.

Candidates who participate in various CDG programs range from high-income executives and professionals, to students and those making school-to-work transitions, retirees, and people in programs for unemployment, disability, or poverty including welfare-to-work, and people returning to the workforce.

For educational and training institutions, CDG designs, develops, advises and assists in setting up or improving the direction, management and performance of internship and placement programs as well as training programs including those for displaced workers.

For employers, search firms and other professionals in the fields of employment and career development, and for potential host organizations for volunteers or interns, CDG provides qualified, prepared, focused, committed candidates.

CDG's approach is client-centered and individualized within a supportive group setting, with an emphasis on candidates' sustainable development, helping participants to become more effective and self-sufficient with regard to their jobs and careers, more productive and engaged in their work and its meaning for themselves and others, and to find their own true vocations and realize their full potential, throughout their careers and lives.

CDG provides information, perspective, advice and assistance, and appropriate referrals. CDG is directed, managed, staffed and facilitated by volunteers who head search firms or are corporate recruiters, career counselors or other professionals who support people in finding jobs, education and training, and career direction. CDG works collaboratively with professional societies and associations, usergroups, other job networking groups, government agencies in relevant fields including employment and vocational services, educational and training institutions, and others.

CDG welcomes contacts from those seeking to set up institutional partnerships with CDG, or looking for advice or assistance, or to make referrals to CDG. To publish or list CDG information in any publications or media, see below.
