For more than 20 years, Turning Point has been helping participants identify their skills and strengths, set goals and find their next steps along a career path.

Workshops are available fall, winter and spring quarter. In friendly surroundings an individual can explore personal strengths and interests and learn how to present skills to current or prospective employers.

Career / Life planning support

Individuals learn, identify and build on:

  • Personal skills & strengths
  • Confidence & self-esteem
  • Job market trends
  • Job search skills (resume writing and interview techniques)
  • Career, training, and employment opportunities
  • Community resources
  • Goal setting and action plans

If you think you may be interested in attending a workshop, ask yourself these questions:

  • Am I struggling because of a life transition or lack of direction?
  • Am I navigating a change in my personal or professional life?
  • Do I know where to find resources to help me make decisions about my future?
  • Am I ready to be empowered to change my results?

If your answer to these any of these questions is "yes," you are invited to attend a free workshop. Workshop includes a free, one hour Turning Point follow up, where Whatcom staff offer a Guided Pathways approach to identifying your strengths and next steps, at Whatcom Community College or beyond.

Contact the Turning Point office for further information:  (360) 383-3185.
