After the Layoff: Getting Help
Randi Ross-Quick was laid off from her job. She looked at her 20-year-old resume and knew she needed some tips and suggestions so she could find a new job. She turned to the Plus 50 Initiative at Richland College for help. Located in the Dallas County Community College District, the college offers workshops and seminars tailored to job-seeking plus 50 adults like Ross-Quick. She got great tips on interviewing and networking from one of the seminars, and is planning to implement some new time management planning. She took a workshop on job searching for plus 50 adults, where role-playing helped her build her confidence. Two of her friends have already taken a seminar at the college and another is signed up for classes.
