Marc Miller, award-winning author, podcaster, and owner of CareerPivot, will join us for discussion of his book Repurpose Your Career: A Practical Guide for the 2nd Half of Life on Monday, May 17th at 6:30 pm. Our Career Book Club Moderator, Cherelle Faust, will host and facilitate the discussion. This is a virtual event via Zoom. Marc Miller has made six career pivots over the last 30 years. He understands this is not about jumping out of the frying pan into a fire but rather to create a plan where you make clear actionable steps or pivots to a better future career. Many Baby Boomers either can't retire or don't want to, but they want a change. Maybe a career they've always dreamed of or just something more fulfilling. Marc's book shows how that change is possible. It requires a strategy and a series of practical steps that are outlined in Marc's engaging text. Cherelle Faust, M.S., PHR, SHRM-CP currently works as a Human Resources Business Partner for Booz Allen Hamilton. She is strategic and creative HR professional with more than 10 years of experience leading global and multicultural workforces.
