Wise Webinar A Day Series: Getting to Know Your Community Differently with Dan Rutten

Please join us on Monday, April 20th for our next webinar, Getting to Know Your Community Differently: Community Mapping and Informational Interviews” with Dan Rutten.


Getting to know your community is often more complex than it seems. Although there are many opportunities sitting on the surface, often these are similar to those that we’re found before and at times don’t meet the interests or needs of the job seekers we’re working with. In this session, Wise’s Dan Rutten will provide an overview of key ideas and concepts related to informational interviewing and community mapping as tools to move job seekers forward on their path to employment
