EAU CLAIRE -- The Educational Opportunity Center, housed at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, will host a program titled "Career Discovery" in Eau Claire.

The free program will allow community adults to develop a strategy for personal career development. Using presentations and group activities, the workshop will enable people to look forward and plan for the future. During each session, participants will take the Myers Briggs Type inventory to identify career interests.

The sessions will be broken up into four parts and will be held at the L.E. Phillips Public Library in Eau Claire.

  • Thursday, Nov. 6, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.: The first session, "Discovering Lost Values," will focus on valuing what has been left behind.

  • Thursday, Nov. 13, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.: The second session, "The Compass of Self-Knowledge," will center around identifying preferences in relationship and work environments using the Myers Briggs Type Indicator.

  • Thursday, Nov. 20, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.: The third session, "Put Satisfaction in Your Sights," will help participants see possibilities in future goals.

  • Wednesday, Nov. 26, 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.: The final session, "Finding a Bearing," will help participants develop a strategy that goes beyond basic career survival.
