Special Program Helps Ex-Tech Workers Find Their Feet
The decline in local industry has hit hi-tech workers harder than most. Usually, young, well-educated and highly ambitious, redundant programmers and technicians have found themselves with too much time on their hands and no idea what to do with it. To help tech workers find either new professions or way back into their old one, personal development coach Sam Childs has launched a special program to laid-off computer types moving in the right direction.
“Unemployment certainly isn’t a new phenomenon,” explains Childs, Principal of Sam-Childs.com who has been giving career and personal guidance for more than twelve years. “But for many hi-tech workers, this is the first time they’ve seen a pink slip and the effects can be devastating for their confidence in themselves and for their future.”
Childs’s program will work on two areas at the same time: overcoming the psychological blow of being laid off; and putting together a practical plan to get back into the workforce.
Although it’s crucial to have a resume that addresses the needs of the market and interview skills that will get you called back, Childs argues, it doesn’t help to win the job if your previous experience makes you too scared or insecure to take the kinds of career risks you need to get ahead.
The Program will point out the usefulness of each of the participant’s skills, reinforce their confidence and give them the security they need to both find a job- and succeed in it.
There will be thirty places on the special program, which will start on February, 1 2009.
