Description

THERE IS ONE REASON WHY YOUR EMPLOYMENT APPLICATION WILL BE DENIED...

In today's job market, having experience is not enough to get the job. Hiring managers will pass on an applicant who cannot demonstrate that they have the soft skills to be part of a team and eventually lead it. As the West Georgia region is experiencing growth in jobs and industry, all citizens need to be qualified and ready to work. One of the key issues that affects workforce is that jobs go to residents outside the region to those who are prepared to work with others and fit in with company culture.

On January 27, 2018, the Institute fo Civic Entrepreneurship, a LaGrange, GA based non profit (501(c)(3) pending) will present Dream Chaser Day. This is a "soft skills symposium" that will include break out sessions on:

  • Interview skills
  • Resume prep
  • Time management
  • Social media etiquette
  • Financial management
  • Goal setting
  • Teamwork

We also have two keynote speakers that will inite the audience and provide information that will inspire action and results. Mack & Ria Story of Top Story Leadership will present from thier nationally recognized "Blue Collar Leadership" program. Viedra Sullivan of LaGrange based Northbound 7 is a Transformation Coach and John Maxwell certified trainer. Both of our featured speakers have stories that demonstrate the power of overcoming obstacles by improving thier lives and developing the skills for success.

The "grand finale" of Dream Chaser Day will be the "Dress for Success" fashion show. Local stores will feature styles that are professional for the workplace, yet fashionable and fresh! We will also feature local vendors and food trucks in support of small business vendors.

The event is free - please register online by January 25th!

We hope that you can join us for this very special day. If you are interested in volunteering and/or sponsorhip, please visit www.DreamChaserDay.com for additional details.
