Career Development Workshops for Staff

Fall career development workshops for UC Berkeley staff begin soon. Workshops span all segments of the career development process, from self-assessment and goal-setting to communicating strengths effectively, and are open to all levels of staff. Through a partnership with Counseling and Psychological Services, Talent and Organizational Performance funds these free-of-charge workshops to help campus staff with career planning that connects their interests and strengths with career opportunities. Confidential career counseling is also available to staff members - for some, meeting individually with a career counselor can be helpful in clarifying career questions and planning relevant, attainable career goals.

Advance registration is required through the UC Learning Center via the Blu portal.
