Counselor Webinar

Yesterday a webinar was conducted for counselors.  It was entitled “Get on the Grid.”  Important career development and exploration planning information was provided for employment opportunities available to students.  The jobs provided were in high wage, high demand, high skill areas and required good soft skills, literacy skills, and post-secondary training.

Click the link below to view the webinar.  When you reach the page, you will be asked to enter your first and last names.  You will enter your email address as well.  After providing this information, the webinar recording will begin.

I hope you find this helpful.  Feel free to share with those in your districts who might find it useful.
