Uplevel Your Position Spring 2023 Cohort Launches May 30, 2023



The Uplevel Your Position Program Career Development Program has been redesigned so social work students and recent grads (within 2 years) can chart a clear path to the career of their dreams. The Uplevel Your Position Program can help avoid pitfalls as you begin your job search, create materials that stand out from the competition, and establish your unique professional identity.

I understand the frustration and confusion that job hunting and career planning can produce so I created the Uplevel Your Position Program. The Uplevel Your Position Career Development Program was created to help social work students stand out in a crowded job market, fearlessly express their abilities on paper and in job interviews and give their career confidence a boost.

If you want to elevate your career confidence and competence, enroll in the next cohort of the Uplevel Your Position Career Development Program beginning May 30, 2023.
