The Illinois unemployment rate recently hit 10.3%, the highest it’s been since 1992.  Many consumers are worried about losing their jobs and are looking for ways to retool, develop new career skills, and earn additional income. This interactive training will focus on how to teach youth and limited resource audiences to “take charge of their career” in today’s markets. Guest speakers from the financial planning industry, state agencies, and local businesses will discuss key employment issues facing consumers such as preparing financially for employment transitions, constructing a career roadmap, and gearing up for changing employment opportunities. Conference participants will receive the DVD-based Financing Your Future curriculum, which includes 5 videos with complementary lesson plans to help students and clients develop the skills they need to establish successful career paths and secure financial futures.
