Survey comments from previous Tools for Transition participants:
“Elizabeth's classes helped me identify the direction I want to go with regard to my career. I don't think I would have identified this without attending this workshop.”
“Where do you learn essential skills about looking for work? Here. What's more, the value goes way beyond in that the approach Elizabeth teaches is not only good for ‘finding a job,’ but keeping your career advancing outside of the ‘bubble’ of your current workplace. This info can help keep you from stagnating by building a professional network and keeping you connected to what is happening in your field in a broader way.”
“This class should be incorporated into every pending graduate's curriculum.”
“I was able to immediately implement the skills and tools you outlined each week!"
