There are a number of job fairs, seminars and coaching sessions offered in the Chicago area. The good news is that there are many of these events designed to help you help yourself in your career and job transition. The bad news is that most of these events are not very interesting and offer very little in terms of inspiration or offer you tools for your life and career. Quite frankly, most of them are boring.
Harper College in Palatine is offering a free event on Saturday, May 4th from 9am-1pm. It is designed to inspire the attendees by offering speakers and programs that entertain and to give you tools to think outside of your box. It is meant to be fun. That’s a refreshing change in this world of job seminars. Inspire U is an exploration and experience expo that inspires adults to go forward.
It is meant to spark your imagination, explore new ideas and to regain career focus. Its goal is to awaken, restore, and recharge your mind, body and self. By learning how to make yourself, your career and your life more fulfilled, you will be better positioned for positive change in your life.
Inspire U will be kicking off its sessions with a keynote presentation by Sam Glenn who will entertain using his own mix of humor and life lessons to help you go forward. He will share his unique strategies to combat stress and offer you ideas to help you develop a positive outlook and thrive. I hear he is really good at this, so don’t miss it. Check-In starts at 8:30am and he speaks at 9am.
The mini-sessions and expo are from 10am-1pm. You don’t want to miss these other speakers, which range from help in organizing your finances to dealing with life as a woman after 40 (Terri Lee Ryan) to a wine and cheese event hosted by a renowned Sommelier (Marcei Flori). There is truly something here for everyone at this event.
I am delighted to host a segment based on my book, Life is One Big To-Do List that addresses life and career choices after 40. What are we doing in our lives? And how do we make what I call the second-third of our lives the most rewarding it can be?
Harper College is a fixture in the northwestern suburbs of Chicago. I attended the school prior to going away to college and found it to be a progressive place to learn. It has always been a great school and has some of the best teachers in the Chicago area. They really know how to throw an exciting event. Don't miss it.
