The Pomerantz Career Center is pleased to offer the engaging and interactive UI STEP--Workforce Development Program to student employees again in the Spring of 2022.

UI STEP provides professional development and training for your student staff that is beyond the job specifics and focuses solely on workforce development and professionalism.

This FREE session is offered 5 times though students only need to attend one. Attendance will be taken at the session in hopes that you will compensate your students for the time spent in the workshop.
