UNDERSTANDING THE EMOTIONS OF A CAREER CHANGE by quotes

Scottsdale Job Network Meeting

SJN MEETING: TUES, February 5, 2008

UNDERSTANDING THE EMOTIONS OF A CAREER CHANGE

Join us on as we roll out the SJN CURRICULUM on the Job Search Process.

Have you been “down-sized,” “right-sized,” “acquired,” “merged”? No matter what the cause, you find yourself out of work. In this time of transition, you will experience a roller coaster of emotions. Join us when SJN Board member and member of the Curriculum Development Committee, Maria Wojtczak, helps participants understand the emotions that may surface during the job transition period. Maria will share strategies for coping with those emotions. Moving forward, you’ll find it easier to focus energies on your job search and next employment opportunity.

Facilitator Maria Wojtczak has 20+ years of organization development (OD) experience and worked with a wide range of organizations. She has worked with Chris Vicari, President of the Scottsdale Job Network, offering the Passions workshop and Job Transition workshops for the last five years. She currently serves on the SJN Board and is a member of the Curriculum Development committee. Maria is a graduate of the University of Michigan. She is also the owner of DrivingMBA, a driver tutoring facility here in the valley.

What does it cost to participate?

We do not require membership dues or meeting fees to allow everyone who is in job transition to be able to participate. Since our program is unfunded, we suggest that participants make a voluntary donation of $5 per meeting. When we have an all-day workshop, we do need to pass the costs along to participants.

Meetings are held on the first and third Tuesday mornings:

9-9:30 Networking, resume reviews, contact with recruiters

9:30 Welcome, announcements, introductions

10:00 Speaker begins

11:15 Speaker ends, feedback collected

Burton Barr Central Library Celebrates Summer Solstice by quotes

 Burton Barr Central Library Celebrates Summer Solstice

Burton Barr Central Library, 1221 N. Central Ave., will celebrate the summer solstice Thursday, June 21, the first day of summer and the longest day of the year.

The free celebration begins at 11:30 a.m. with Irish and Scottish music performed by Rich Bailey followed by a noon talk by architect Will Bruder, who designed the library.

The event takes place in the Great Reading Room on the fifth floor, which was designed with the summer solstice in mind. On the first day of summer the sun is at its highest path through the sky and the day is the longest.

As the solstice unfolds, light and shadows will move across the walls on the fifth floor through the skylights, and sunlight will illuminate the room’s tapered columns.
