Fox Valley Technical College works with employers who anticipate the need to transition employees into other careers because of displacement, job reassignment or department reorganization. Employment and career counseling services can be customized and developed with a focus on moving employees forward and assisting them with exploring career options.
Services include workshops that give dislocated employees an opportunity to be proactive and plan for career transition.
