College Possible Milwaukee named a ‘Best Place to Work’

It’s official!

College Possible is one of Milwaukee’s “Best Places to Work.” Out of nearly 160 applicants in five different size groups, College Possible was named a winner in the “micro-small” category of the Milwaukee Business Journal’s “Best Place to Work” competition.

Results were determined solely by employee satisfaction surveys, administered by the Business Journal.

When talking to current employees, it’s easy to see why College Possible stands out from the crowd.
