June 10, 2023, My Career Transitions

Topic: Take Control of Your Career – Do What You Desire, Dare, and Deserve

Speaker: Alvina Peat

Time: 9:45 a.m. – 11:45 a.m.

Location:  Virtual Event 

Sponsor: Penn State Great Valley Alumni Society

More information for this FREE event will be available soon.

This session is uniquely designed to focus on you and your pursuit of future career goals and aspirations. You will be introduced to a methodology coined the Four Pillars of Empowerment. People are often intrigued by the pillars and will admit they have never thought about their careers in such an empowering way. They begin to see their career path more clearly, with more confidence and control.

Four Pillars of Empowerment

I Do – Identify your professional strengths (and we all have them)

I Desire – Boldly declare your heart’s desire

I Dare – Remove the fears that block your success

I Deserve – Create your success mindset

In this webinar, you will learn how to:

  • lean into your professional strengths
  • boldly declare your professional/career desires
  • break through mental barriers that hold you back from attaining the position you desire.
  • create a success mindset

Alvina knows all too well what it feels like to lack confidence, clarity, and control when it comes to one’s work. After a period of dreaming about doing the work she desired, she took control of her career. In 2022, Alvina has once again stepped out of her comfort zone to write her first book, Take Control of Your Career: Do What You Desire, Dare and Deserve to Do.

In her spare time, Alvina lends her talent to organizations dedicated to the advancement of women. These include WOMEN’S WAY, Women’s Business Enterprise Center-East, and The Pennsylvania Conference for Women.

Alvina inspires women nationally and internationally, to remove the barriers that get in the way of living their most empowered life.

Friday, June 16⋅9:45am – 12:00pm, Michael Brenner – Amp Up Your Career Transition with Emotional Intelligence, The Princeton Public Library. 65 Witherspoon Street, Princeton NJ 08542  

Emotional intelligence (EQ) refers to the ability to perceive our emotions (and those of others) and manage them effectively. EQ pioneer Dr. Daniel Goleman—and many other social scientists—consider EQ to be more important than technical competence for success in both personal and professional contexts.

It’s especially important for those of us in transition, since most people vying for the same job are about as smart (from an IQ perspective) as we are. What makes the difference are our inter- and intrapersonal skills, and how well we navigate through the inevitable ups and downs of the process.  That’s what EQ is all about!

Join Dr. Michael Brenner, founder and CEO of Right Chord Leadership, for this thought-provoking and motivational session.  Leveraging decades of coaching experience, Michael will demonstrate how to position yourself for success in a crowded marketplace by amplifying 4 dimensions of EQ: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, and relationship management.

By attending this session, you will learn:

  • The four dimensions of emotional intelligence and the important role they play in career transitions
  • How to become more aware of your emotions during your job search
  • How to regulate negative emotions for better outcomes
  • How to increase the capacity to empathize with recruiters and interviewers
  • How to leverage relationship management skills to network more effectively

If you want to shift careers or feel like you need more training to be competitive in your current field, you may want to explore the many publicly funded career training options.  Through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act and other education grants, many people can access training for in-demand occupations. In this presentation we’ll explore what the training options are, the funding sources, ways to access funding, eligibility requirements, and much more. What better way to prove your skills to an employer than to show a recent training or certification.

Recurring Meetings

Sundays from 9:00 – 9:30 am: George Pace, an IT Technology Leader, in Partnership with TBCNJ, host a weekly LIVE Webinar every Sunday to discuss:

  •       The latest Federal / State news as it relates to the Job Market
  •       Updates related to Unemployment

The Ramsey Job Search Work Team meets every Monday morning. Networking and meeting starts at 9:00 to 10:30.  Members are expected to hold each other accountable at weekly (virtual) meetings for conducting a job search in earnest. Historically, the team has enjoyed a very high rate of “landings” by those conducting an active and vigorous job search.

Based on the Lee-Hecht-Harrison model, it’s more of a project management team made up of people committed to helping each other in the job search. By attending regularly and staying focused on key tasks, meetings serve as an advisory panel that knows you and your search and can offer answers to the questions that come up in job hunting.

Help others to help you (especially for the first few meetings) by having a prepared “elevator pitch” to introduce yourself. Jobs open up because there’s a problem to solve or a need to fill.

Please contact Beth Berkenfeld at bberk2@optonline.net or 201-797-4342 if interested in joining the group.
