Performing Arts and Entertainment Professionals often find themselves working in supplemental employment that doesn’t connect to their values and skills. As a result, many find themselves in jobs that create the dreaded soul-sucking experience.
This three-session workshop will help you explore meaningful career preferences, identify obstacles to obtain fulfilling work and develop strategies and resources to create a roadmap towards career satisfaction.
