jobsCompetencyWorks has added a new page to our website to list career opportunities.  As our colleagues move from one school to another, one organization to another, we transfer knowledge, create opportunities for learning from each other and strengthen networks. So we want to help out by making it easier for you to find the folks you need.

So check out the Career Opportunities page under the Resources tab. There are four great opportunities listed now. In the future, please send your job listings to [email protected] so we can add them.
