Frequently Asked Questions:

I am a supervisor. Can I take the Growing Your Career series?

Absolutely! This workshop series is designed for any City staff person who would like to explore their own career development. Program content is valuable for staff at all levels of an organization.

Can you provide a workshop for my department?

Yes! This workshop series can be provided for a departmental group or team for up to 20 participants per class. However, since this series is four sessions in length, please contact us well in advance of your target date, so that we can make sure to accommodate you. If you are interested in a group session, please contact the Career Development Program Coordinator, Jack Hagerty @ to discuss scheduling and pricing.

Can I miss a session and make it up later?

Each workshop day builds on the previous day and involves some pre-work between sessions, so please register for a series where you will be able to fully participate in all sessions and pre-work. This helps to maintain program continuity for yourself, as well as your cohort colleagues. In the case of an unexpected illness or personal emergency, make ups may be allowed in a later session, only when the session is not full.
