current marketing plan is working. Join Ian in this New Canaan Career
Transition Support Group workshop to gain a better focus on the job search
process you are using. Even if you are achieving the results with the timing
you have planned this is an opportunity to share some of your concerns with a
career search professional who is plugged into the local market. If you walk
away with just one idea to improve your search it will have been well worth the
