Part 1: Your Career Game Plan!

September 25, 2018, 5:30-8:30, Mead Hall, Cambridge, MA *Workshop starts promptly at 6pm.

Presented by Jenn Walker Wall, Founder of Work Wonders Coaching

The first of three sessions, this workshop is for self-discovery for those starting their careers and for those transitioning to second (or third, or more!) career journeys.  

You’ve always followed the rules.

You’re doing great work. You’re paid well.

But something doesn’t feel right.

You have a nagging feeling that there’s untapped potential inside you.

You want to take smart steps towards a career that is more satisfying, with more meaning, more purpose. Ultimately, you want to do work that matters!

Leaving a safe job is scary.

Every time you think about making a big change, doubts sink in:

  • You’re too young (or too old).

  • You don’t have the time (or the money, or the knowledge, or the skills).

  • What if you fail?


Why You Should Attend:

  • What isn’t working for me in this company/role/position?

  • What do I really want to do?

  • How do I overcome my fears?

  • How do I seek opportunities on my own terms?

Jenn will lead us to explore practical frameworks and strategies to provide you with the skills to craft your own career plan!
