Your Career Development Portfolio (CDP) is the best way to showcase why an employer should hire you. It empowers you with action steps and tools that help you illustrate how you can deliver on the job. It includes not only your resume, but also highlights your work and learn experiences, and your professional network and connections. You will complete your CDP with your career coach by your side. 

Career Coaching

Personalized Approach

Work and Learn

A focused, one-to-one relationship with a career coach who will help you figure out the right steps for your career path. You can ask questions, work with the coach to explore programs and careers that feel right for you, and lean on them for navigating your next steps. Your experience with the Career Coaching and Employer Connections program will be personalized to fit YOU. Whether you know your ideal path, need some help deciding, or are making a career change, your career coach will help every step of the way. Often times you want to test drive a car before buying it. Why not test drive a career? With work and learn you will get the opportunity to network with employers and gain experience in careers that interest you, like assisting a chef in a kitchen, aiding a teacher in a classroom, or working on a computer with an expert.
