This workshop is most appropriate for adults with at least 15 years of work experience.  These days, workers are apt to change jobs frequently and many are taking the leap of switching careers or industries. Turn what could be a daunting ordeal into an invigorating inner journey of self-reflection.  Whether you're feeling clueless about what you want, or are focused on getting a toehold in a particular industry or career, it's unrealistic to try to totally "reinvent" yourself. For those with years of successful work experience, a more practical approach is to "reintegrate" by drawing on our accumulated knowledge, and highlighting the valuable transferable skills we bring to the table.    Sherry Natkow takes you on a scenic journey of your own work history.  You'll assess your interests, values, and skills from your past jobs which, in turn, will increase your self-knowledge  -- the important  first step to a career change. By looking backward, you'll move forward more thoughtfully. Take William Shakespeare's advice, "What's past is prologue" and uncover new insights for a rewarding new career direction.
