Dean Pulliam Credits Our Support and Office in Helping Land a Great Job

Career Transition Institute Testimonial: COLUMBUS – August 18, 2013. I am a “True Believer” in the quality and applicability of the Career Transition Institute training program…and am especially supportive of the “compassionate community” that thrives within, between and among its members, the volunteer Class Facilitators and Trustees of the organization’s governing board. I regularly recommend that colleagues interested in making transitions to more responsible positions, to other companies or to redirect their career path, visit the CareerTI office to experience the facility and its array of resources, and to learn more about the program. These elements (particularly the physical site and professional office environment) were instrumental in assisting me, during my job-search process.

Chuck Wolfe Credits Us With Helping Him Learn How To Build a Network and Land a Job

Career Transition Institute Testimonial: LIMA, OH – July 1, 2013. My goal was to use my Executive Director skills to benefit a small to medium size non-profit in either Central or northwestern Ohio and it happened. The Monday morning 30-second mantra was a visualization and pep talk for me. The power of affirmation is a wow! I worked very hard for six months establishing a network in Lima, Ohio. When I started, I only knew a few people there. I developed a prospect list of non-profit leaders, both professional and volunteer business people. I used LinkedIn to research and develop connections. I drove to Lima once a month to attend a meeting of development and executive directors. I set up appointments with them, community leaders and others presenting my credentials, my desires, and myself face to face. I always followed up with a thank you email. I attended chamber and networking events. I read the Lima News online. My current position I discovered through a newspaper ad, and developed a networking web around it. When I interviewed with Family Promise, I could legitimately say that I knew the Lima community and was willing and able to serve it well.All these skills I learned through my experience and training with Career Transition Institute. Please get involved in making Career Transition Institute a better organization. It will give you a purpose which is so important during a career transition. You can sharpen existing skills, learn new skills, get to know your fellow members and make new contacts. Become involved in the community for the same reasons. Form a career transition team! You never know where you will be noticed.
