Registration Required: Alumni and Friends Event Website

Are you weary of feeling tossed about in the stormy seas of economic stress and uncertainty? If so, you're not alone! With the Great Recession heading into its sixth year, no one has been untouched by far-reaching ramifications of the economic downturn—unemployment, underemployment, and a drastically different supply of opportunities. As a result, the fabric of jobs and career pathways is being rewoven across a range of sectors. So what's a professionally motivated, critically thinking UChicago alum to do? Rethink the model, of course.

Join us for a webinar exploring new ideas about resilience as it applies to the world of work. Recent multidisciplinary research suggests that the traditional view of resilience as "bouncing back" is oversimplified. This webinar will examine how the experts are redefining the idea of "bounce-backability" and consider the implications for work, family, organizations, and communities. We'll also share information on an array of career resources available to you as a UChicago alum.

Jennifer Woods Parker, MSW, is a coach and consultant in Charlotte, North Carolina who serves as the career chair for the North Carolina Alumni Club. She has experienced the challenges of graduating into recessions on multiple occasions during her career in coaching, training, and consulting. If you cannot attend the webinar live but would like a recording, please register anyway. You will receive an e-mail from within two business days with a link to access the recording.
