Thursday, December 3 at Noon (Eastern) Career Connections Consortium free ‘Reinvent Your Career’ webinar series by John West Hadley. Are you in an industry or job impacted by COVID, and worry that you may need to reinvent your career to continue bringing in the income you need? Or are you just tired of where your job is heading, and want to move in a new direction? I’ve worked with numerous clients who reinvented themselves. Sometimes this involved a minor shift, others a radical change. I’ve also made two successful career transitions myself, and want to share what I’ve learned. And I want to bring into the mix what has worked for others. Thus, I’ve embarked on a series of webinars to explore the clues that helped create successful transitions, to help you uncover the recipe for reinvention. For this third webinar, I have the pleasure of interviewing my good friend Alan Seiden about his successful transition from a job where he couldn’t fully develop his talents, to his own consulting practice that completely replaced his corporate income within a year. Alan has grown his practice to include a half dozen subcontractors, and is considered a rock star in his niche! I’m going to probe into what sparked the change, and what made it work, to unearth the keys to Alan’s success, that you can then apply to your own career. This will be an interactive webinar, where Alan will also respond to your specific questions. To register, visit http:/
