Colorado Career Conversations Training Project

Free, high-quality, professional development for individuals in Colorado who are positioned to have career conversations with students or others who are navigating career decisions.

The purpose of the Colorado Career Conversations Training Project is to provide free, high-quality, professional development to individuals throughout the state who are positioned to have career conversations with students, job seekers, clients, or others who may need support navigating career decisions.

In case you missed it, read our project update regarding COVID-19 here.

In response to our changing environment, due to COVID-19, we moving all trainings to virtual, live Career Conversation Trainings using the Zoom video conferencing app. We are confident that the virtual workshops will provide meaningful professional development and provide an opportunity for all of us to connect around the important topic of career planning and transition. Zoom provides capabilities such as breakout rooms and polling, which we will use to create an engaging experience for participants.

If you have any questions, please contact Liz Kuehl: lkuehl@coloradoedinitiative.org.

Once you register for a training (click the ‘Training Schedule and Registration” link below), you will receive an email from Liz the day before (or morning of) your training with the unique Zoom link for your training. Check your junk/spam folders if you don’t see it right away – and don’t hesitate to reach out to Liz if you have any problems.
