Free Workshops & Events

Our monthly workshops offer a wide variety of interactive classes to help anyone become ready for employment. Regardless if you are experienced or considering employment for the first time, we have a workshop for you!
What makes our workshops stand apart? We asked for feedback from the companies you are applying to. Our Business Services Team asked employers they work with on a daily basis to share with us what they are looking for in a candidate. We took their feedback and designed unique workshops just for you!

“The seminar itself was so much more helpful than I could ever have imagined! …I feel so much more confident and equipped for any possible interviews”
