A Career in Transition: First-hand Lessons From the Front Line
Everywhere you look, career advice and guidance abounds. There are books, videos, blogs and entire websites devoted to the topic. There are even individuals who have built a career for themselves telling you what to do with your career. Some of these resources are excellent, but there's so much out there that it's difficult to "separate the wheat from the chaff". Also, much of this guidance is based on years of scientific research across thousands of job seekers, but it's hard to get timely, first-hand accounts without suffering through "horror stories" at the local career networking group.
About the Speaker
Like others in a quickly-disappearing demographic Scott was a "lifer", having worked as a permanent employee at one firm for almost his entire career before being laid off due to offshore resourcing. Despite being thrust into the job market for the first time in many years, he was able to transform his career by switching industries and by switching from permanent employment to consulting.
