Resources to Grow Your Career at Home

So much has changed over the past month. While these changes aren’t something any of us would have chosen, they do give us a chance to pause, reflect, and plan for our future. How can we grow through this experience? What should our next steps be? Everyone will answer those questions in different ways, but we don’t have to navigate this time alone. Even during this time of social distancing, people are finding new ways to connect. At the College of Professional Education (CPE), we want to be a connection between the community we serve and resources that can be helpful today and in the future. Are you:

  • looking for a new job?
  • wanting to learn a new skill?
  • Interested in personal enrichment?
  • needing professional education or advice?
  • looking for encouragement and stress relief?

We hope these resources will help you grow both personally and professionally while you work and learn at home.
