The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire's Educational Opportunity Center will present a two-session career planning program for Eau Claire area adults thinking about career change and returning to school.
In the first session, Exploring Your Options, offered Tuesday, Sept. 5, participants will complete the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, learn about the local economy and begin to look at how their skills, interests and aspirations might fit with employment opportunities. They also will explore the numerous training options in West Central Wisconsin.
The second session, Making a Decision, will be Wednesday, Sept. 6. Participants will explore the results of the MBTI completed in session one and learn about their distinctive thinking styles and how they relate to career choice. They will match up career areas identified in the MBTI with local educational and employment opportunities. Financial aid for adult students also will be discussed in the session.
Both career planning sessions for adults will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Clearwater Room of Davies Center on the UW-Eau Claire campus. For more information or to sign up for this free two-part program, call the Educational Opportunity Center at (715) 836-2024.
