It’s scary when you feel forced into a career change, but things will be ok — the great news is, you have options. career change can be confusingIt can be hard to know where to start when you expected to remain employed by the same organization until retirement. I have worked with countless clients while they went through a career change following the sale, closure, or reorganization of their previous workplace. This page includes a collection of resources designed to help people who need to make a career change after working for one employer (e.g., GM or one of its suppliers) for an extended period of time. Many of these resources have come from my blog/’AudioBlog’ which is searchable by keyword, by voice on Android devices and Chrome browser and has 180+ articles that you can read or listen to. Additional information is available in past issues of my bi-monthly newsletter ‘You Heard it Here!‘ (you can view and/or subscribe here).
