Step Up to That New Career
with: Richard Gunderson
Thursday Morning, July 7th
7:30 - 9:00 am
Job transition starts when a person decides to pursue new employment and it includes all the activities and decisions that need to be made up to and including the time when the individual is hired.
Job transition involves multiple parties: the job seeker, the employer looking to acquire new talent, and all the individuals that support the job seeker and the employer throughout the process.
A process has a beginning and an end. It involves multiple steps that need to be executed in a specific sequence. This presentation will describe the ten steps in the process and some of the little-known secrets that will streamline the process.
The job transition process has no meaning unless there are employers actively involved in talent acquisition. What does the job seeker need to know about the employer? What does the employer need to know about the job seeker? We’ll discuss this subject from both perspectives.
Richard Gunderson is an entrepreneur, trainer, coach, consultant, author, and job transition/career change troubleshooter that can unlock the secrets professionals need to know to secure new employment regardless of their age, title, gender, career, and years of experience.
His career started in engineering and grew into business management where he became an expert in cross-functional business teams. His employment, terminated at age 50, provided a motivation to help professionals faced with similar circumstances. He is the Founder and President of Career Job Transition LLC. His new book “Step Up to that New Career” was published in March 2022.
