June 27: Managing Overwhelm
Even with a directed goal like updating your resume we can find ourselves going down the rabbit hole of “overwhelm”: I’m not sure what’s important; who will I send it to; should I put dates; I don’t know this program well enough; I’m not even sure what SEO or keywords means; I have laundry to do. Life Coach Donna Agajanian will lead a workshop to help you understand what’s happening when you go into overwhelm and how to manage it.
July 4: NO SESSION
July 11: Networking
Networking is something that we all know is an essential part of life, whether you’re looking to find a new job, promote your business, or just living. For many of us, the idea of networking feels uncomfortable. Executive coach Kris Ishibashi will engage you in an interactive session that will get you connecting.
The support that members give one another is of great value. Listening carefully to one another, participants ask questions that are both sensitive and insightful. Members rediscover their own value through helping others achieve their goals. Often members are able to help each other in tangible ways.
CareerSearchers does not provide counseling but, when appropriate, may offer referrals to appropriate resources.
Participants are free to express their concerns and draft documents at CareerSearchers because confidentiality is respected by all. To protect everyone’s privacy, members are asked to refrain from discussing each others’ situations outside of meetings.
CareerSearchers members have a wide variety of backgrounds: men and women, all age groups, most occupations, and many different socio-economic levels. Most members are out of work, many are hurting. Some are new to the job world or are re-entering it. Still others are seeking to change their careers.
There is no charge to participate. CareerSearchers is sponsored by St. Michael’s Church as a service to anyone who is – or expects to be – out of work, changing careers or entering or re-entering the job market.
