Career Exploration & Planning – Live and Online!

WWC Announces Statewide Launch of Online Career Class

Adults of all ages and backgrounds from across Maine will now be able to participate in a new online career planning class. Women, Work, and Community (WWC) will offer Career Exploration & Planning — Live and Online beginning the week of October 17. Registration for the class by September 19 is required in order to set up students’ online accounts.

The hybrid course will consist of two live class meetings and three weeks of facilitated online activities and discussion. Live classes will take place in Waldo, Knox, Cumberland, Kennebec, Somerset, Franklin, and Oxford counties. Other locations will be added in the spring.
“We’re pleased that we’re able to offer this online program to so many students,” says Linda Buckmaster, WWC Employment and Training Coordinator in the Midcoast. “We know how difficult it can be for people to make it to live classes because of transportation problems or conflicting work schedules. We also know that students are requesting more online programs to meet their needs, especially in rural parts of the state.”
The program has been adapted from WWC’s regular career planning courses. It is made possible in part by a grant from The Betterment Fund and the Maine Department of Labor. For more complete information, see listings on our Trainings page.
