CROSSROADS “CRASH” COURSE

FOR CAREER TRANSITION

 

What you learn in these 7 sessions could change your life! 

 

 Step by step, this class will help guide you how to find a job if you are unemployed or anticipating a career transition. Our Crossroads "Crash" Course for Career Transition is based upon Crossroads Career Network's "Seven Steps Workbook”  (www.crossroadscareer.org). We call it the “Crash Course” because it is an intense version of a class often taught over 7-14 weeks. 

 

This month’s class is expected to begin on or about April 27 at 6 PM.

 

YOU MAY REGISTER FOR THIS CLASS AND RESERVE YOUR PLACE. HOWEVER  THE DATES ARE NOT FINAL.  WE EXPECT THE CLASS WILL START ON OR ABOUT 4/27 AND CONTINUE FOR 2-1/2 WEEKS.  CLASSES ARE NORMALLY HELD ON THURS, TUES, THURS, SAT, TUES, THURS, SAT (7 SESSIONS).  WEEKDAYS FROM 6-9 PM AND SATURDAYS ARE 9 AM - NOON. IF YOU HAVE REGISTERED AND ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND ONCE THE DATES ARE FINALIZED WE WILL REFUND YOUR TUITION PROMPTLY.

 

The Crash Course consists of 7 sessions conducted over a 2-3 week period. Please plan to attend ALL sessions as the class is cumulative and missing one session can put you seriously behind. Topics covered during the seven sessions include: 

 

  • Building a Positive Attitude
  • Discovering Your Gifts, Passions and Calling
