I will be one of six speakers, former jobseekers who are now successfully employed, with inspiring and motivational stories of what finally worked. Each presentation will run about 10 minutes, followed by a panel-type discussion after last speaker is finished.
The event will take place from 7:00-8:30 p.m. at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin, 4700 Grover Avenue. The church is located at the end of Grover, near the Austin School for the Blind.
Bring a friend! Light refreshments will be served, and job postings will be announced. Attendees who are currently unemployed should be able to count this gathering as a job search contact.
My presentation will range over some of the career management topics I have covered in my blog, and will include the infamous “Spam Guy” story. I hope to see you there!
