AmeriCorps Alums Launching Professional Development Series
Thursday, March 26, 2009
Posted by: Greg Heinrich
With unemployment rates increasing month over month, it is becoming increasingly difficult to set yourself out from the pack and attain the career position you are seeking.
AmeriCorps Alums is piloting a professional development series with BCK & Associates, a professional development firm that connects highly skilled employees with employers seeking those skills. Led by Barry Kleiman
, the pilot webinar and conference call will be geared toward AmeriCorps alums and current AmeriCorps members.
The purpose of this pilot series is to provide advanced job search/career development training and education to AmeriCorps alumni and current AmeriCorps members. The course, delivered through a series of live, online classes and forums, builds on the individual talents, skills, and commitment to the careers of AmeriCorps alumni.
We will begin the series by hosting an introductory call that will explore and explain the content and structure of this truly unique, innovative series. Your attendance will be allow you to gain an understanding of Barry's (www.barrykleiman.com
) training style and whether or not the series will be beneficial to your professional development.
To accomodate for time zone differences, the introduction call will be offered at different times.
Call # 1: Tuesday, March 31, 2009 from 7:15 PM to 8:15 PM Pacific Time
Call # 2: Wednesday, April 1, 2009 from 7:00PM to 8:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
There will be no cost to attend the introduction call (not included in the series), and the cost to attend the entire series of three calls is a flat rate of $10, to be paid after the second call- a 90% discount. You are welcome to attend the first two official calls after the introductory call, and if you decide you have received the value you expected, you can pay the $10 fee. If you do not think you received the value you expected, you will not be obligated to pay the $10 fee.
