Colorado job seekers in need of career advisement
The unemployment numbers in Colorado continue to climb and we are approaching graduation season when thousands of new graduates will join the job market during a daunting time.
You can be part of the solution
Participate in a Colorado Career Conversation training to build your skills, expand your network, and explore resources so you can help others as they navigate career choices.
Trainings are FREE, fun, and participants receive continuing education credits
There are virtual Career Conversation training opportunities scheduled through June on a variety of dates, times, and training lengths to fit any schedule. Find one that works best for you (and your team) and register today!
Ideal participants for this training include school counselors, workforce center advisors, higher education advisors, college and career navigators, mentors, teachers, administrators, coaches, custodians, parents, after-school providers, librarians, and ANYONE who might have a career conversation.
As an initiative of the Education Leadership Council and on behalf of the Colorado Department of Education, the Colorado Education Initiative is offering Colorado Career Conversation training. The training and framework were also built in partnership with the Colorado Workforce Development Council, Colorado Department of Higher Education, and Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.
This free professional development experience is intended for anyone who might have a career conversation. The goal of the project is to train 5,000 individuals by June 2020, expanding the number of skilled advisors able to deliver a consistent career advising experience.
In response to our changing environment, due to COVID-19, we have transitioned the training to virtual, live Career Conversation workshops using the Zoom video conferencing app. We are confident that the virtual workshops provide meaningful professional development and provide an opportunity for all of us to connect around the important topic of career planning and transition. Zoom provides capabilities such as breakout rooms and polling, which we will use to create an engaging experience for participants.
