When a professional finds him/herself in a career transition, some of their employers may provide professional transition assistance, while others do not. However, whether the executive receives professional career transition support or not, each will still find that he/she needs regular exchanges with other business persons, where they can discuss their experiences, concerns, and good resources.
Most businessmen and women value and recognize the need to mix with other working people, where they can seek insight, expand their networks, or learn of opportunities and resources. It takes time for each person to determine for him/herself what exactly is his/her career goal. Even then, a person needs to research enough about a company to decide if that company matches “the employer criteria” created by the candidate.
Compass Career Management Solutions has facilitated professional venues, which provide successful and productive outcomes. Though unemployment is low, 40-60+ people move to the Charlotte Metro daily, which causes a job search to still be very competitive. CCMS plans to continue providing a professional transition venue for businessmen and women, who recognize the need and value for meeting other colleagues in transition. Robyn Crigger, CEO of CCMS, believes Corporate Job Seekers understand the value of helping each other and are still open to learning more.
If interested, corporate job seekers can go to our events page and view upcoming dates for this venue. If you choose to attend our meeting (Transitioning Executives), go to “Events Calendar” and register for the specific meeting online.
This group will be managed and facilitated by Compass Career Management Solutions, thus people need to register on our website prior to the meeting. A minimal fee will be charged to attend ($3/meeting), which reserves your seat. The number of attending is based on the location’s seating capacity (possibly 15 – 20 people) and to allow for all attendees to receive quality information and support. The goal or purpose of this group would be to provide limited assistance/guidance to those corporate, salaried people with their career transitions , though not individual counseling.
We plan to meet the 3rd Tuesday of each month from 8:30 – 10 a.m. Meeting location will be Famous Toastery at 1640 Sardis Road North, Suite 160, Charlotte, NC 28270. After registering for the meeting, email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your resume as well as your name, what position you seek, phone and email address. Please register the Friday before the meeting date. Compass Career Management values being a credible resource to those in transition.
