A 2014 Gallup poll shows that 70% of America’s workforce are “disengaged” in their jobs. That means they are working, but they aren’t enjoying it. Economic recovery has been slow, and some people feel like any job is better than no job. They just keep going to work and making the best of it. If that describes you and you have had enough of working at a job or career that doesn’t interest you or fails to make you feel valued and validated, it may be time for a change. In spite of the economic recovery, some mid-career professionals still find themselves in impending layoffs and in need of job search strategies in highly competitive markets. In this webinar, join Career Transition expert Kitty Boitnott for a lively discussion of the ten key considerations you need to successfully “re-engage” in a more fulfilling job or career.
