If you’ve lost passion for your current job or are in transition and need a little guidance, join us this Wednesday October 23rd at 1pm EST for a live video chat on how to find your next opportunity. Submit your questions here, on Twitter using the hashtag #NewJobChat, and Facebook. Read on for more details.
At some point in our careers, many of us hit a wall: we burnout, lose passion, or simply outgrow our jobs. Yet while we might want to quit and find something new, we know it isn’t that easy. We have to manage pressing responsibilities, or worry about not finding something new and struggle with the fear of starting over.
The truth is finding a new gig doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing endeavor.
In this live Q & A, Cynthia Jaggi, Founder of GatherWell, the think and do tank for Practical Idealists, and Millie Burns, Deputy Chief of Programs for Catholic Charities of the East Bay, will explore common signs that it’s time to move on, offer advice on how to find a new job when you can’t quit the one you have, and take your questions. Instead of focusing on what you’d like to leave behind, we’ll talk about small things you can do each day to bring you closer to your next great opportunity.
Topic: Experiment your way to a new job: Small steps you can take to explore and secure a new opportunity
Date: Wednesday, October 23rd at 1pm EST.
