Book Club - Switchers
Host: Ramesh Jayavaram
Location: Virtual (a Zoom link will be sent to you a few days before the event, after registration)
Date: Friday, June 11th
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST
Join fellow career coaches and counselors as we dive into some of these questions and reflect on the book "Switchers". Even if you haven't read the book, feel free to join so you can learn from others and share your experience.
Why is this topic relevant? The pandemic has spurred/motivated a lot of people to consider career change due to changing priorities, economic conditions, and other factors. Career changers, or career switchers, could be the new growing (lucrative) segment of job seekers who need guidance. These people face some big challenges: not knowing which companies, roles or industries that best suit their goals and needs, which opportunities will keep them motivated for the short-term and long-term, where to start, and how to brand themselves without focusing too much on the career change. The topic of this book is all about how we can help them successfully make a good choice.

About the book: Switchers is the first book written specifically for the career changer and will help you to realize your dream. The first step is recognizing that the usual rules and job search tools won’t work for you. Resumes and job boards were designed with traditional applicants in mind. As a career switcher, you have to go beyond the basics, using tactics tailor-made to ensure your candidacy stands out.

Date: Wednesday, July 14
Time: 5:30 PM - 7:00 PM EST
Host: Jim Ognibene & Laurie Stickels
Join CCC members Jim Ognibene and Laurie Stickels for Stories by You: A Storytelling Extravaganza. A networking event sharing our hearts and minds with each other during summertime.
We all use stories to make sense of our world and to share that understanding with others. Who doesn’t love a good story? In small groups, attendees will be invited to share 3-4 minute stories falling in two categories, ones you’ve already heard and want to share and ones you will create during this event. Bring three things: your inner author, your magic of mystery, and your agent of all things not yet discovered.
Newcomers especially welcome! Nurture your established relationships and make new ones. Join us for the fast moving, highly interactive gathering of kindred spirits.
