A Fresh Look at a New Career

To help our friends who recently lost their jobs, the Guild is proud to sponsor a daylong career counseling session on Thursday, July 28 at Butler University that will offer a great mixture of job searching skills, networking tools and self-assessments.

The program is free to the Star employees who were laid off last month and includes lunch. It will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Butler University Center for Faith and Vocation, 4615 Sunset Ave., directly across from Clowes Memorial Hall.

The session promises to look and feel a bit different from the July 2 program at IUPUI, which offered encouragement from former journalists who have made a life beyond the Star.

The Butler event will offer practical tips on resume writing and job searching in the digital age and networking in areas beyond public relations. It will allow you to take the Strong Interest Inventory, an assessment tool that suggests careers that may best suit your talents and interests. It will be led by Gary Beaulieu, director of the university’s career center.

Partnering with Gary in the event is Butler’s Center for Faith and Vocation, which is led by former Star reporter Judith Cebula, who along with former Guild president Marc Allan, pulled together this event.

As such, the Center for Faith and Vocation will offer some sound helpful guidance on both the practical and spiritual aspects of life and work beyond The Indianapolis Star, including build a life of purpose, meaning and contribution.
