EDISON - Many people that have lost their jobs are returning to school to train for a new career. News 12 New Jersey caught up with some students at Middlesex Community College.
School officials say the career training center has record enrollment this fall because of people who need to make mid or late-career changes because of the recession.
Many students are like Herman Kelly, who was laid off from the medical field when the hospital he worked at shut down. Now he's enrolled at the college for a non-degree program for computer and medical related fields.
Others like Kizzy Lee weren't laid off, but enrolled because they wanted a career change. Lee says "now my children are big and I can finish what I started when I went to college in New York."
People looking for job retraining have included business executives and many people who've worked in financial services.
