Career and Educational Planning (WERC)
Wellspring Educational Resource Collaborative: making career and educational goals a reality.
I used to work crazy hours with no health care and no chance of advancement. Now I have benefits, a great schedule and constant training. WERC helped me focus on what I really wanted, took skills I learned and made me the perfect candidate for the job.
