Ask Beth Ann Wilson Career Coach by Kate Rainey
Beth Ann Wilson, who specializes in career transition for those of all ages and diverse backgrounds, will discuss how conducting a job search and planning for a career shift raises many questions with Joseph’s People 7 – 8:30 p.m., Sept. 3, at Media Presbyterian Church, 30 E. Baltimore Ave., Media, Pa., 19063. All are welcome to the free event, regardless of religious affiliation.
Ms. Wilson will create a safe place to ask questions, hear the rationale behind job seeking and career planning answers so you can address future challenges with confidence. Questions discussed include when interviewing, how do I answer the salary question? How do I ask a contact for an introduction to a hiring manager at their organization? What is the best use of my time when seeking my next position? Is my LinkedIn profile searchable? Is volunteering in a career or organization of interest a good idea? How can I respond to employers who think I am overqualified or lacking experience, too young or too old, have too much or too little education?

Professionally recognized as a Board certified Career Management Fellow from the Institute of Career Certification International, Beth has held leadership roles in global and local professional associations.
