(Delaware & Chester County, PA) – Delaware County Community College will host Career Directions for Women, a 10-week workshop on Tuesday’s beginning, September 20 through November 22 from
9:30 to 11:30 AM at the Marple Campus - 901 South Media Line Road, Media, PA. The cost is $99 for residents of school districts that sponsor Delaware County Community College and $148 for non-sponsoring districts.
Career Directions for Women provides guidance for those considering major life changes such as re-entry into the workplace, a return to school, career change, or a shift in lifestyle. The workshop provides support, personal attention, and a structured approach to career decision-making. Group members explore individual career options, learn effective career research methods, and develop a career-action plan. The Myers Briggs personality indicator will be included in the price of the workshop.
Periodically, many women may step out of the workforce to provide care for children or other relatives, or they may work part-time at jobs with flexible hours to accommodate family schedules. However, at some point, the desire or need to return to a more full-time or prominent career may emerge. Career Directions for Women can ease the transition of restarting a career.
The workshop leaders are Helene Stavis, a counselor in Delaware County Community College’s Career and Counseling Center and Peggy Schils, a licensed professional counselor. Stavis and Schils 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 16 participants and seats will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information or to register, call Lisa Fay at the College’s Career and Counseling Center at 610-359-5324.
