It’s not unusual to respond to negative changes in our lives with reactions such as surprise, anger, disappointment, or even fear. Moving beyond these emotions when your job ends or your industry has been disrupted is essential to presenting yourself as an energized and qualified candidate – one who is ready to embrace new possibilities and is enthusiastic about making a contribution to your next employer. In this interactive workshop, you will learn about the ups and downs of the 3-phase transition process and how to adapt to and manage your reactions to change. Discover how you can handle “endings” – such as job loss – and move forward to welcome the “new beginnings” of career opportunities.
Presented by Robyn Winters, TBJL Career Strategist
