New program to assist workers in making future plans

2nd Stage Students learn how their group behavior is important.

Career Transition Center (CTC) has been in the area for four years and is currently teaching classes at the Westlake, Euclid, Cleveland and Shaker Heights public libraries year-round. The newest program is being offered on the west side again. It is “2nd Stage Institute” which will be in addition to CTC’s basic classes and job clubs. This is a joint venture with Vision 21 Consulting’s Dave Clements and Rev. Charles Eduardos of Victorious Living System. It is a series of reasonably priced specialized classes and group coaching for workers in the Managerial, Professional, Technical and Upper Level Administrative fields to assist them in moving into their next stage of life. The students will learn specific techniques that will help them handle this transition.

The workshops that are offered are designed to help begin new/second careers, volunteer paths or entrepreneurial endeavors which will take students well into retirement and beyond. Many people in the area still need to work, some want to work or volunteer and some just get bored after an early retirement – and yet do not know how to change their situation.

Students will meet and learn from a professional career manager, life transformation coach, or organization development/behavioral specialist to discuss career goals, experiences, barriers, life problems, personal growth and job search needs. Some assessments will be given to assist in determining direction. But all will finish the series of five main courses. This will help determine their direction for the rest of their life. 

You do not have to be unemployed to attend. Classes will begin Oct. 15 in Rocky River. Go to www.careertc.org to enroll and pay or contact Cynthia.wilt@careertc.org or call 440-409-0318 for further information or to register.
