Career Transition: Targeting A Great Career: How to Achieve Satisfaction in your
Next Job
- August 10

Many job seekers pick their next job target based on "that's what I've always done", "that's what I'm good at", or "that's where the money is".  Yet it is not often that we take a step back and methodically test these assumptions, to see if other paths are both possible and might bring us more satisfaction.  Knowing what you like to do, what you’re good at, and where you want to go in life-- these are the keys to planning a career move that will be rewarding and "right" for you. In this talk, we’ll review self-assessment exercises that will provide both this self-knowledge as well as a framework for making decisions among many career possibilities.  Specific exercises include the “Seven Stories” to assess what you enjoy doing that you're good at, a job-related values exercise, the “15 and 40 year vision”, and a methodology for making decisions between different job alternatives. If you plan on attending, please RSVP at AlumniRSVP@mail.montclair.edu by August 5 with your name, graduation year, and phone number.  Please reference 7/21 Happy Hour in the subject line. For more information, contact the Office of Alumni Relations at 973-655-4141. [For more information]
