    1. What a great website! Having watched mikeroweWORKS grow, this is exactly what I imagined and hoped would be in place!!

    2. Would be helpful if the mrW button went to the Trade Resource Center itself. Too confusing to figure out what mrW is or how it’s useful when you end up in the den.

      Shamefully the “quiz” portion of the Jobstart 101 should be aimed at recent high school graduates instead of recent college grads. The fact that recent college grads don’t know basic basics such as not showing up in cruddy khakis and chatting about things other than business with your new co-workers on your first day is quite….scary.

    3. I’m a “Discovery Educator” and have gone to many of their workshops and use their materials in class, so I’m personally thrilled to see this website go up and the participation of mrW in it. Easy to navigate and something that students could use as they begin to explore their career options. Sending it on to my Career and Technology colleagues!
