Online and Convenient...Easy-to-Use

The workshop is online and easy-to-use. Use only those sections relevant to you, or do the activities in the entire workshop. Work at your own pace, on your own time — in the comfort of your own home, favorite coffee shop, or other place where you can relax, focus and think about your future.

Personalized Feedback (Additional)

Upon completion of the activities — and for an additional fee — visit with a Health Careers Center counselor to receive guidance and feedback on your own situation, catering to your interests and needs.
