Wednesday, February 20, 2013, Noon to 1:30 PM

Location: Plainfield Public Library, 15025 S. Illinois St., Plainfield, IL 60544

Career transitions are challenging, but not impossible. Candidates moving from one industry/position to another are competing against others who currently work in those roles or industries; the goal is to illustrate to employers that your transferrable skills outweigh direct experience. In this presentation, we’ll cover real life examples of people who have successfully transitioned from one industry to another: how they identified and capitalized on transferrable skills, and how they presented these skills on paper and in the interview.

This is a free program.  Bring your lunch; dessert is on us.  Registration is requested by calling 815-327-2515 or online through the Calendar of Events.
