Are you unemployed or underemployed and feel alone with self-blame and shame? Well, you are not alone and there is a remedy. Institute for Career Transitions is offering a unique 7-session series to increase your sense of possibility and regain personal agency and well-being. This is not job search strategies, tips, hacks, and tools to find a job. There are plenty of resources for that. This is different because it deals with improving how you feel while looking for a job, so you are more motivated to act.

In job search, as in life, it is critical to participate; to express who you are. In order to get the full benefit of what this virtual group offers, participation is required with video camera on. It is a small group experience in a safe space to put your voice out and be heard without judgement. Participating will help increase your confidence and ready you for interviews and networking conversations. A fee is charged. The 7-session series begins on October 18.

How do we heal today's grief and loss to become the leaders the world needs now?

Rev. Jen Bailey explores this question in her first book, To My Beloveds: Letters on Faith, Race, Loss, and Radical Hope — a unique and moving collection of love letters to her fellow activists and faith leaders. The book inspires us all to imagine how grief and despair can help shape a new life filled with courage, hope and purpose for our shared future.

During this one-hour event, Rev. Bailey will read from her book, talk with Encore.org’s Eunice Lin Nichols about radical hope, “the special magic that happens when generations come together,” and much more. There will be time for your questions.
