Get the Right Job, Right Now!
How do you know which job is right for you? Few of us take the time to create a career plan that includes career exploration, and a job search strategy.
The vast majority of us, stumble from job to job without any rhyme or reason. In fact if you had the unfortunate situation of not seeing a layoff coming, you were totally unprepared when it happened. When that happens, most people will end up looking for a job, not a career job.
Join Alan Kearns for a fascinating look at how you can step back for a moment to evaluate what you want to do, and translate that knowledge and understanding into a search for a job that will match your skills, goals and aspirations. Now is as good of time as any to build a new life for yourself and for those who count on you. Let's make sure you are going to be happy and productive in the new job you land!
