Susan Zelnio, Workforce Development Program Director of the Moline Foundation, has an extensive background in Human Resources and career coaching.
This six part series is designed so that each 30 minute session provides a 15 minute Q and A period. Each session stands on its own so that participants can attend as many or as few sessions as they'd like.
Registration is required and Susan will email the program Zoom links to registered patrons.
