Shifting Gears Shifting Careers

Don’t get stuck in neutral. Opportunities for leveraging a new career are available now. Shifting Gears is a five-month intensive program that will help corporate workers adapt their knowledge and skill sets in order to transition into more competitive and effective professionals focused on small business growth. The three phases of the program include:

•    First Gear: Retool Career Portfolios, workshops and in-class sessions
•    Second Gear: Test Trials, practice simulation and practicum project
•    Third Gear: Launch Point Readiness, one-on-one time with a mentor and networking opportunities
