Looking for a career change?

Posted by lbanner on September 5, 2007

The University of Virginia Darden School of Business hosts a Career Transitions Workshop annually for individuals looking to “clarify their mission in life.” Darden’s Alumni Career Services Center shares the following information on the 2007 workshop:

Darden’s Career Transitions workshop has been expanded and revised to focus on both life and career transition issues. Whether you are in your 30’s and facing today’s changing job market, in your 40’s or 50’s and facing mid-career (and mid-life) decisions, or older and simply challenged by what to do with the second half of your life, this workshop offers you a time, a place and a process to tackle these issues.

The fourteenth Career Transitions workshop is scheduled for November 12-14, 2007 at the Darden School in Charlottesville, VA. All University of Virginia alumni and their spouses/partners are invited to attend. All participants must have at least 10 years of work experience. The workshop fee is $1,795 ($1,595 for registrations before October 1), which includes tuition, room, board and all workshop materials.

If you are attempting to define or clarify your mission in life, you will benefit from this workshop. Sessions will include a number of topics, including the following:

  • Use of self-assessment for life and career plans
  • Your life story and lesson
