2012 Philadelphia Book of Lists - MyCareerTransitions

 

Partnership Helps Professionals in Career Transitioning Process

Penn State Great Valley's Alumni Society will partner with MyCareerTransitions in 2011 to provide MyCareerTransitions' free, monthly forum for area professionals so that they can learn, exchange information, and develop networking relationships to help themselves through job transition.

 

What is now called "MyCareerTransitions" was started in 2005 by volunteer and group leader, Bart Ruff. Over the past 5 years (and thanks to a few mergers of groups from Company of Friends and ASTD, volunteers, and venue sponsors along the way) the group has helped more than 4,000 area professionals navigate job transition. And they've done it without funding - relying on the efforts of an all-volunteer group that contributes their time as a way to “pay it forward” and help others. “The purpose of the group is to be a resource for professionals who, despite successful careers, simply don't know how to navigate a downsizing or other career change, so they're not alone. I am pleased that Penn State will host us and sponsor our mission so that we can continue to help people without any cost to them." said Ruff.

 

Monthly meetings will be held the 2nd Saturday of every month (except Dec and Aug.) at the Penn State Great Valley campus at 30 E. Swedesford Rd., Malvern, They feature a speaker that educates the group on a relevant topic, and opportunities for networking and support. The first event of 2011 is January 8, from 9:45 to 11:45 a.m. . Cheryl Bonner, Penn State Director of Alumni Career Services, will provide career counseling, job search tips and networking assistance.
