About This Webinar
Have the realities of the post COVID-19 economy started to hit home? Many are furloughed, laid-off, fired, or living with the fear that their job is at risk, particularly as PPP funds run out and many employers face difficult decisions.

You might have even thought about seeking a new position earlier this year, only to be derailed by the global pandemic.

This webinar is for anyone finding yourself:

-Spinning your wheels, trying to Google “how do I find a job,” getting overwhelmed, and going back to the couch.
-Exhausted and demoralized by the economy and what it’s done to your career and life.
-Worrying about money and watching your bank account dwindle with no clear game plan.
-Telling your significant other “I’m trying to find a job” as you find the end of the internet and promise yourself you’ll be more productive tomorrow.
-Making excuses when friends ask for your résumé, or ask how they can help.
-Frustrated that you were about to search for a new job, and then COVID-19 came and put everything on hold.
-If any of those resonate, join us to learn how to take back control of your career and build long-term career resiliency.
