Career Transition Plan
People will change careers 7 times as adults. This is a fairly recent situation. So it is very important that people understand and master Job Changes. Many people take what they think is a temporary job to cover some mounting expenses only to find that they have entered a new field for which they are ill prepared. The Career Transition Process identifies many of the topics one must master or at least be acquainted with. The Process is a general transition flow chart that represents major steps from Transitioning out of a company, Knowing Yourself, Marketing Yourself, Selling Yourself, Negotiating a New Job and ultimately to Keeping Your Next Job. There are many job search topics one must learn about to successfully find a new job. These topics are associated with each of the major steps. EARN speakers address these topics throughout the year and the Job Search Work Team covers many in more detail. For more information, visit our Career Transition Plan Page.

Job Search Work Team (JSWT)
The Job Search Work Team is intended for those people that are looking for work who are willing to step-up and better organize their search efforts. The purpose of the team is simple: the appropriate placement of each team member as soon as possible. The team functions as:
- An advisory panel that provides guidance in dealing with day-to-day issues and problems of job hunting. By hearing and providing advice on a wide range of practical issues, team members learn more quickly how to conduct an effective search.
- A core network that expands your personal network by sharing leads, information and contacts. Team meet meetings are designed to accelerate networking within the group, and the team becomes a learning laboratory for networking.
- A task support group that encourages members to support each other in their search projects. Team members pledge a limited amount of time each week to assist other members. The team is a support community of people in transition.
- A project management team that helps you monitor your progress, providing support to keep your search focused and productive.
