New Trier Township Sponsors Career Strategy Program
Managing Your Way to the Finish Line, a seminar for individuals in the job search process, will be presented by Career Resource Center, Inc. (CRC) with sponsorship by New Trier Township at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, June 23 at the Township Office, 739 Elm Street, Winnetka. The program will be conducted by Mary Beth Barrett-Newman, President of 2nd Career Consulting and a volunteer Career Advisor with CRC.
Ms. Barrett-Newman will focus her presentation on the process of conducting a job campaign. Her philosophy is that a job search needs to be treated like a job with the seeker managing his time, creating routines and setting goals. A job search is a marathon, not a sprint, and employment seekers need to develop the disciplines of planning, follow-up, tracking and patience in order to meet their career goals. As an experienced job search coach, Ms. Barrett-Newman can walk attendees through strategies that will help them to create structure and set priorities to result in improved productivity and enthusiasm.
Mary Beth Barrett-Newman spent the first 30 years of her first career in the financial services industry. She works with professional women who, after taking a career break, have decided to re-enter the workforce, and she coaches men and women looking to make career changes. Ms. Barrett-Newman also specializes in helping recent college grads to establish professional goals and find employment.
