Winter Employment & Career Services (ECS) Build Your Skills Workshops

Vermont Works for Women (VWW) is excited to host a winter series of our interactive, virtual Build Your Skills Workshops

Attendees can anticipate walking away from each workshop with applicable resources and strategies for their own career journey.
