Many women leave the workforce to provide care for children or other relatives. Some work part-time jobs with flexible hours to accommodate family schedules. At some point, they may experience the desire to re-launch themselves into full-time, meaningful employment. Re-launching a career can seem challenging and overwhelming after time away, however, Launch Your Career Comeback will help ease such a transition.
Participants will receive support, personal attention and a structured approach to career planning and decision-making. They will also explore their strengths and possible career options, develop a career-action plan, create a resume, develop a LinkedIn Profile and practice effective interviewing skills. The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator personality test is used extensively and is included in the price of the workshop.
The workshop is facilitated by Susan Miller, a counselor in the College’s Career and Counseling Center, and Peggy Schils, a licensed professional counselor and counselor in the Career and Counseling Center. Miller and Schils both hold master’s degrees in counseling and have extensive experience working with women and their career issues as well as with job search techniques for unemployed adults.
The workshop is limited to 12 people and seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. The cost of the workshop is $125 for residents of sponsoring school districts and $175 for those in non-sponsoring districts.
