Russell Library Job Group

Russell Library presents weekly opportunities to network with other job seekers, as well as receive the advice of professionals.  Expert guest speakers focus on the job market and provide industry information.
Speakers will present from 10:30 - 11:30 AM
Guest Speaker: Fran Trelease
Fran Trelease is the owner of Boomer Den, LLC., a company that helps boomer-age adults re-invent their careers through internships. 

As recently as last year, an AARP study found that “nearly 2 in every 3 workers had either seen or experienced age discrimination in the workplace.” It’s a sobering statistic; but it doesn’t have to represent everyone’s story.  More Americans 50 and older are realizing they have more options than to “hope” they don’t get downsized as their years at a company accrue. We can carve our own paths. The time for career reinvention has come.  And while it’s not always easy, the rewards far outweigh the risks.
