Here’s what fellow participants had to say about the empowering sessions:
* I am ready like I have never been ready before
* The books were good, organized, and kept me interested
* All of the instructors cared about our success, that meant a lot
* I’ve never been so engaged, the value of the sessions went far beyond expectations
* Role-playing activities will help me understand how to deal with workplace confrontation better
* Being a single mom without any college, I couldn’t help but feel for Megan. The way you made us see ourselves in the challenges others faced was so valuable. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Each of the six workshops is committed to a specific career lifecycle element. Throughout each workshop, you will be introduced to a wide range of career strategies and applications proven to enrich your personal and professional development.
Highlights of the six complementary classes are as follows:
Creating Your Job Search Plan: Addresses effective job search and career management strategies as well as common techniques to overcome the psychological effects when faced with unemployment.
Crafting Your Cover Letter and Resume: No doubt the key to finding a job is a well-written, value-filled resume and cover letter. Our second of six workshops cover the basic and advanced methods behind writing an effective resume and cover letter, and also provides examples and tips along to the way to YOUR career success.
Networking in the Digital Age: According to a recent study conducted by Harvard University sociologist Mark Granovetter, 74.5% of all jobs come through networking. No doubt networking is a key in success but how does one network effectively? Series three is an ideal guide to get you on the right networking path, and keep you there!
Job Search Tactics: This fourth of six workshops takes you through each step of a digital job search. Everything from selecting an online job search site, creating an online profile, to uploading a resume is covered. Furthermore, alternative methods such as social networking, job fairs, and walk-in’s are detailed.
Interviewing and Impressions: The fifth workshop breaks the interview process into a series of steps. We start with preparation for the big day, move onto the interview, and then cover the follow up. Let this interview workshop be your guide to acing every aspect of the interview by realizing the many values and contributions you offer an employer.
Performance Excellence: The final workshop walks you throughout your 90-day review period and beyond. Be prepared to learn the meaning and process of on-boarding, develop conflict resolution skills, and examine the best practices to give and receive feedback. Furthermore, you’ll be introduced to concepts such as how to handle confidential information and contractual agreements.
