Happy Holidays! Please do enjoy your break and enjoy the holidays! We on the CareerWise team know that you all deserve this time off!

Overall, work with your Ed team point person to get a pitch date on the calendar! We are looking forward to pitching and engaging with students about the CareerWise program.



In the conversations, let your point person know about your interest in the WBL Curriculum & prepare a list of interested students who would be scheduled for a class or advisory session.

As a reminder: all interested students for the class or the program be vaccinated or willing to be vaccinated by the start of their apprenticeship since employers will require vaccination.

Here is the link to our resources folder. We recently added parent letters that have been translated in Arabic, Bengali , French, and Spanish.

What to look forward to: in-person pitching, employer engagement events, and our WBL- curriculum that will be released for the Spring semester!
