Hello, my friends!
I had a 27-year career in Healthcare IT and took a severance package. As you can imagine, much changed in that time, especially in the world of job seeking.
I want to help you learn from my mistakes.
I am not selling anything and I do this to help all.
While searching for a new position, I began to accumulate a lot of information that can help others.
Note to the employed:
If you are currently employed, congratulations. Don’t do what I did and ignore the opportunities you have while working. Learning new skills and tools at no cost to you (other than your valuable time) is priceless.
Maintaining your network and being involved in specific interest groups can be critical. If the day comes when you have to find a new position, I want to help you diminish the potential for pain.
Note to all seekers:
If you are currently seeking a position, my heart goes out to you. I will be recommending many tips and resources for you. I am not selling anything. I have seen many accomplished people struggle in your situation and I want you in the right place for you ASAP.
One other thing: It’s important to maintain your sense of humor and do the things that keep your spirits up. People in the job seeking community are here to support each other.
The pursuit of a new position is not for the faint-of-heart. Make sure you keep circulating and meeting as many people as you can. You never know when a contact will suddenly step forward with your dream offer.
I am a volunteer for the Greater Philadelphia Area Great Careers group and owe much to the group for the knowledge I have gathered. I am amazed by the number of experienced people in search of positions and hope to ease your journey.
I am here to help and interested in your story and any questions you may have.
If I don’t know the answer, I will do my best to get one for you.
Your (Fair)brother in Arms,
Tend Your Career
