About Christine Leake & Winning Wednesdays
Christine Leake, Assistant Director of Graduate and SPCS Admissions, developed the Winning Wednesdays series after researching the latest trends in the economy, adult education, and the admission process. The purpose of Winning Wednesdays is to provide the community with relevant resources presented by experts, in the hopes that participants are provided the tools necessary to further their career aspirations. For some, this may mean an updated resume, learning about the latest trends in the job market, interviewing techniques, and perhaps the need to further their education.

This series was designed with today’s adult in mind and all workshops are free and open to the public. The workshops are delivered by the College of Mount Saint Vincent’s talented faculty, and expert guest speakers.
