Challenges for the Experienced Worker in the Post-Pandemic World

If you’re a mid- or later-career job seeker, it may feel like there are many factors working against you while searching for new employment opportunities. This has been further compounded by unexpected changes to the workforce brought about by COVID-19. Now more than ever, it’s crucial to make sure you’re creating a focused approach to branding yourself.

In this webinar, James Kane, Director of Executive Education at Rowan University and Adjunct Instructor for SHRM HR Education at the Glasscock School will suggest useful tools to remain positive, focused and energized.

Topics include:

  • See the big picture (planning your approach)
  • Take some time to introduce yourself - to yourself! (resume, networking sheet, business cards and social media)
  • Understand your network and how it works for you - and how you need to support others (support group meetings, conferences, professional associations)
  • Take a reality check on your career - what did you always want to do, and never did? (assessments, research, career counselors)
  • Getting ready to change direction and thrive (finding that job you really want!)

Join us for a fast-paced conversation on being ready for these challenges and help you navigate them more easily when they come your way.
