Career Workshop: The Pandemic and You: Looking for Work in the World of COVID19 Online

The Pandemic and You: Looking for Work in the World of COVID19 with Dr. Helen Evrard MD

Knowledge is power. This workshop will show you the basics of how our immune systems handle microscopic invaders. If you find work outside the home, you’ll learn about what employers should do to minimize your risk of contracting this new virus along with common sense tactics to institute yourself. Use your new understanding to stymie the myths and untruths that can impede your job search progress!

Searching for work when you’re unemployed, under-employed, or just unhappily employed can be stressful. Job loss can be devastating, especially if it’s unexpected, and finding a job can be a daunting experience if you haven’t been in the market for a while. Now add an extra level of fear and anxiety- CoVid19 pandemic. Everything is changing. Dr. Evrard will present a scientist's view of the pandemic and what job seekers need to know to stay safe and find employment. Her WebEx workshop through the Russell Library Career Program offers help to navigate this uncertain time with confidence.

Dr. Helen Evrard MD, a former practicing allergist, is the author of “Positive Matters: Words, Quotations, and Stories to Heal and Inspire.”

She hosted and produced “Your Mind Matters” on WESU 88.1 FM Middletown from 2014-18, a radio show offering conversations with researchers, practitioners, and everyday people who deal with mental health issues. She is currently a candidate for an MFA in Creative and Professional Writing at Western Connecticut State University.
