Join the Wonderbench Career Launch Course to engage with experts to integrate your passions, capabilities, and evolving future job market dynamics into a robust college major and career launch plan! Visit us to find out why educational professionals say you'll find "CONFIDENT CAREER PATHWAYS" and students say they "LOVED" it!
Wonderbench offers open group, personal, and custom small group course programs. Over the course of a month, we meet weekly for 60-90 minute exciting, interactive sessions. At first, we use tools and assessments to help you identify a top 10 career list. Then during the course, using data and live guidance from professional guests, you'll prioritize your top three career/college major targets. At the end of the course, you'll receive a dynamic career-fit profile showcasing your top 5 target jobs, job values, and an education plan. As a course graduate, you'll also have access to an active Wonderbench candidate profile for future job opportunities.
