UI STEP Workforce Development Sessions

The Pomerantz Career Center, in association with the UI STEP (Student to Employed Professional) Program is pleased to offer the engaging and interactive UI STEP--Workforce Development Program to student employees again in the Fall of 2018. 

 

Through UI STEP, the University of Iowa provides professional development training for your student staff.  This training and development opportunity is beyond the job specifics, and focuses solely on workforce development and professionalism. We engage students in discussion on aspects of the work environment that will help them now and into their future.

 

This session is FREE and we offer 6 dates/times to choose from. The student only needs to attend one. Over the last 3+ years, we have partnered with campus employers to serve over 1,000 students. Attendance will be taken at the session in hopes that you will compensate your students for the time spent in the workshop.

 

Fall 2018 Schedule/RSVP

 

RSVP to josh-frahm@uiowa.edu to attend a session or to partner to develop a department-specific workshop. Over 24 individualized presentations for campus departments have been created over the last 3 years - join the list!
