General & Occupational Work Experience

The difference between Work Experience courses

General Work Experience
(WRKEX 97)

Occupational Work Experience
(courses ending with "99," ex. WEOC 99)

General Work Experience is supervised employment intended to assist students in acquiring desirable work habits, attitudes, and career awareness.

The student's employment need not be related to the student's educational goals.

 Occupational Work Experience is supervised employment of students that extends classroom learning to the job site and relates to their chosen course of study.
