The VAST majority of people still out are over 50 and well educated. It's not fair, it's dead wrong, but it is the way things are. Come and learn ways to improve your situation.

You're in your mid-life years and you're feeling pretty good about the direction your career has gone. After all, you get good performance reviews, a modest annual merit increase, and maybe even a good year-end bonus or solid commission. Then you get an unexpected call to your supervisor’s office. Sitting and waiting for you is the HR director. Suddenly, after years of loyal service, you find yourself unceremoniously let go by your company.

What do you do now? It's not easy, but you can survive and thrive!
Ken has experienced this very painful and personal life event first hand. He will present his personal experience and how he went from despair and fear to finding a position and developing a lifestyle even better than the one he had before.

The reality is that separations from companies happen, but you can navigate through this stressful time and get you where you truly want to be. This presentation will cover:

-The harsh reality of a mid-life job loss
-Restarting your career
-Finding your way to a better life, both professionally and personally
