Career Coaching - Departments & Programs, Programs and Initiatives, Health Occupations and Professions Exploration (HOPE)


The opportunity for UW Health employees to become a career coach is made possible through UW Health’s partnership with Inspire Wisconsin Inspire Wisconsin makes Career Cruising software available to most middle- and high school-aged children attending schools in Wisconsin, which helps students map their way to various careers in any industry.

Career Coaches answer questions about their education and work experience, as well as describe daily duties and schedules in their career.
