Spring Into Careers Career Fair View

Add to Calendar 9:30 AM 3/20/20193:00 PM America/Chicago Spring Into Careers Career Fair

Grant Community High School is hosting a career exploration fair for students as they navigate through their career journey. This career fair will help students learn the ins and outs of their potential career as well as the route they need to take to get there. Should they apply to a 4-year university? Or maybe a trade/technical school? What about a community college? Should they enlist in the military? Should they seek out an apprenticeship? Or should they go straight into the workforce? These are all decisions our students will face, and we hope this career fair will help our students walk away with a better understanding of which career is right for them as well as the path they need to take to get there.

Studies have shown that exposure to a wider variety of career options helps students make more educated decisions when planning for their post-high school experience. We are hoping to provide our students with as many different career pathways as possible at our fair.

We are asking for your help! Would you join us a career representative who will help provide our students with insight into your career world?

If you are in, please register through eventbrite and details will follow.

Thank you for your consideration!

Add to Calendar 10:15 AM 3/20/201911:45 AM America/Chicago RE-LAUNCH YOU: Liftoff After Layoff

Presented by: Catherine Morgan, Transition and Entrepreneur Coach

          Have you been put in a position where you have to make a change because you were laid off?  Forced transitions are difficult and it is easy to feel stuck or overwhelmed. But transition can be a chance to evaluate and to focus on new beginnings. Learn how you can re-frame transition, discover what the new normal is, discuss the roller coaster of a job search, and hear how to make your transition easier. Come away with some “quick hits” to build confidence, accountability and momentum. This program includes tips to create the right mindset for success, and actionable techniques that you can immediately use in your search.

THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF JOB SEARCH View


View

Add to Calendar 1:30 PM 3/21/20193:00 PM America/Chicago THE SPIRITUAL SIDE OF JOB SEARCH

Presented by: Dr. Don Dempsey, retired Presbyterian Minister and forer Outplacement Counselor

          In times of transition and new beginnings, instead of thinking about job search as something difficult to endure, Dr. Dempsey will challenge you to think of this period in your life as an ideal time to re-examine your skills, strengths, and interests believing that there is a sacred purpose that is seeking to find you.

Dr. Dempsey believes and has experienced in his own personal times of transition, loss, and new beginnings, that job search ultimately comes down to faith and trust.  A faith and trust in a power greater than oneself, that some call God, the Tao, the Spirit, the “ground of all being.”  Don believes it is important to recognize and place one’s faith and trust in a spiritual power beyond our comprehension, beyond the material and the physical and that the Spirit plays an important role in guiding and leading us through the ups and downs of life.

The ultimate question I’ve always ended up asking myself and those others I worked with is: “What is your calling?”  Not what others want or think you should do or be, but your own individual calling.  “What is your sacred purpose in life?”

We all have been given certain gifts and strengths, sometimes referred to as our “God given” gifts; we have natural interests, and along the way we have acquired numerous skills, which translate into a variety of experiences and accomplishments. In this workshop, Dr. Dempsey, will challenge each participant to consider, “What is it that you are being called to do in this next chapter of your life?”

Dr. Don Dempsey recently completed his seventh interim ministry assignment.  Don’s unique background and varied experience has prepared him to be of counsel and assistance to people in a time of change and transition. His background includes:

Graduated from McCormick Theological Seminary (1969) and then served for ten years in the pastoral ministry.  During that period of time he earned his Doctor of Ministry Degree in Pastoral Care from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary (1977).

In 1979 Don successfully changed careers.  For the next five years he worked in the corporate world at a major bank in Chicago.  After four years at the bank, he was appointed a Personnel Banking Officer.  Due to bad business decisions a major downsizing took place and he was “outplaced.”

After completing his outplacement program at Right Associates, he was hired by Right Associates as a Vice President.  For 13 years he worked as an outplacement counselor providing individual and group counseling to a wide variety of corporate companies throughout the country.

In 2002, Don reconnected with the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) and for the next 14 years served as an interim minister.  During that period of time he served as an interim pastor at seven different churches ranging in size from 300 to 3,000 members.

In this workshop, Dr. Dempsey, will challenge each participant to consider, “What is it that you are being called to do in this next chapter of your life?”

Dr. Don Dempsey recently completed his seventh interim ministry assignment.  Don’s unique background and varied experience has prepared him to be of counsel and assistance to people in a time of change and transition. His background includes:

Graduated from McCormick Theological Seminary (1969) and then served for ten years in the pastoral ministry.  During that period of time he earned his Doctor of Ministry Degree in Pastoral Care from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary (1977).

In 1979 Don successfully changed careers.  For the next five years he worked in the corporate world at a major bank in Chicago.  After four years at the bank, he was appointed a Personnel Banking Officer.  Due to bad business decisions a major downsizing took place and he was “outplaced.”

After completing his outplacement program at Right Associates, he was hired by Right Associates as a Vice President.  For 13 years he worked as an outplacement counselor providing individual and group counseling to a wide variety of corporate companies throughout the country.

In 2002, Don reconnected with the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) and for the next 14 years served as an interim minister.  During that period of time he served as an interim pastor at seven different churches ranging in size from 300 to 3,000 members.
