This paper will discuss the process in which I, with the help of student staff and others, developed a program that not only trained my student staff for the positions at Whitman College Technology Services but aided them in translating and turning that experience into life beyond the campus walls. The paper will discuss how we went from no formal training to developing an online multi-tiered training system in Canvas LMS. It will also discuss ways I have connected with others in my department and other departments on campus to create workshops for both resume creation and interview experience. Finally, the paper will discuss how the program was designed as a "working document" and will continue to change and develop to keep it from becoming stagnant.
