Finding Work in a Recessionary Economy is designed to help downsized workers find work in a climate where layoffs are flooding the marketplace. The program integrates content and strategies taken directly from Future Design Studio’s successful Life-Work Discovery model. The program is offered at no cost to employers but made available to participants in group workshop and individual formats at most affordable prices. Employers, however, can choose to support valued employees by paying all or a portion of the program costs that would normally be paid by the employee.
Upon completion of the program, participants will be able to: idenitfy 2-4 career options; turn their fears into action strategies; create winning cover letters and resumes; define themselves in the job marketplace; research the needs of area employers through the power of informational interviewing; and use their network members to put themselves in front of decision-makers who can hire them, give them a consulting contract, or fund a business of their own.
Tomorrow we will examine how employers and employees can enroll in the program.
