BOSTON, April 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Startup Institute announces a new one-day workshop called GET UNSTUCK, aimed at helping professionals design a career action plan that will lead to a more fulfilling professional life. Through a series of exercises and inspirational speakers, attendees will gain a clear picture of what they're great at, what they're passionate about, and how to earn a living doing both.
For people looking to find meaningful careers, Startup Institute provides the education and network to help them find work they love in some of the most dynamic organizations in the world. With this one-day program, the company aims to bring a slice of its program's "Core Curriculum"—focused on career planning, emotional intelligence, and leadership skills—to a wider audience.
Says Co-Founder and Program Director, Shaun Johnson, "according to a recent Gallup Poll 70% of Americans report feeling unfulfilled in their professional lives—I think that's tragic. We created this one-day workshop to help people avoid the fate of wasting a huge part of their lives unhappy."
Attendees will take part in exercises to craft a career theme, write a job positioning statement, and overcome their fear of making a career change. Keynote addresses will be given by Marcos Salazar of Be Social Change in New York, Bobby Stephens of Bucketfeet in Chicago, and Jonathan Bingham of Janeiro Digital in Boston.
The agenda will also include a panel discussion with Startup Institute alumni who have successfully made career transitions. They will provide insight into how attendees can position themselves for a variety of job opportunities in the tech sector including web development, web design, digital marketing, and high-growth sales.
