MDwise partners with IUPUI to offer members free career-development assistance

MDwise and IUPUI have teamed up to offer MDwise members a “Career Edge” through a free online career-development course. The non-credit program will help members explore their interests, identify potential career paths and sharpen job-attainment skills, all with the goal of helping them move into careers that offer long-stability and satisfaction.
Through the 16-part course, participants will learn professional communication skills, job-search strategies, networking techniques and more. They’ll also leave the program equipped with a resume, cover letter and list of references. The course is self-directed, but participants will get feedback and support from online facilitators.
“When you think holistically, you recognize that a reliable income from a satisfying career is essential to an individual’s overall health and wellbeing,” said Lissi Lobb, the Gateway to Work Operations Manager for MDwise. “That’s why MDwise is delighted to partner with IUPUI to help our members develop the knowledge and skills necessary to pursue a fresh career path.”
Each of the 16 course modules takes an average of four hours to complete. Members must have an email address to participate. CareerEDGE courses are qualifying activities for Gateway to Work and can help members fulfill their recommended monthly hours.
