Join Philly Career Launch for Our Career Exploration SeriesBy Annette M. Mon, March 27, 2023
Have you experienced job disruption over the past few years? Are you feeling stuck in a low-paying job or wanting a new or better employment situation? Here’s your chance to take hold of your future. Join us for a Philly Career Launch Career Exploration Workshop. Explore careers that build on your strengths and interests and get hands-on experience with online resources.
Do you like working with your hands and are a visual thinker? Then a career in construction, skilled trades, or manufacturing might be for you. Or maybe you describe yourself as a compassionate and caring person who is detail-oriented, in which case you could consider a career in healthcare. Like to play video games? You wouldn’t be the first gamer to go into coding! There are thousands of careers out there and the Career Exploration Workshop will help you get your new career off the ground. This unique session combines self-reflection, small group discussion, and information sharing.
The Philly Career Launch Career Exploration Workshop is FREE! Sessions will be taking place in April and May at various library locations throughout Philadelphia. A boxed lunch will be provided. Register online and choose from one of 10 sessions listed below:
