Dependable Strengths Workshop for Students & Alumni

Looking to start a career? Are you seeking a career change? Or, simply interested in exploring how to enhance your current employment situation? The Career Center’s Dependable Strengths Workshop is an excellent resource for alumni and students in any stage of career development and transition.


Friday, November 21st & Monday, November 24th, 2014
8:15am – 5:00pm

You will identify the unique strengths and talents you offer employers and learn how to leverage them to find a satisfying career. You’ll assess your strengths and open up new opportunities, identify what you enjoy, things you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride.

The Dependable Strengths two-day group process is designed for those interested in assessing their skills and combining them to open new windows of opportunities, with a focus on networking and a nontraditional job search process.

Cost for the workshop:

$100 for Current Students
$160 for UW Alumni Association members
$200 for non-UWAA alumni

$250 for Community Members (those unaffiliated with the UW)
