Last night, I went out to my usual Monday night meeting of the Career Transition Support Group in Brentwood. We were treated to speaker Bill Karlson doing a question and answer session about all kinds of ways to negotiate for the job you want, market yourself to employers and find a recruiter. As usual, I left feeling pumped and now I feel like a failure because it's been 12 hours and I don't have a job yet.
I wandered into the room where we meet and saw some familiar faces--I've been going for a while now and know some of the regulars. But imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw a familiar face from my time at the Wesley Foundation at UTK. I ran into Anne Peoples, who is in the Nashville area and facing a career transition of her own. It was pretty nice to catch up on people I knew from my time at UT and figure out where they are now and what they're doing.
