Support Resources For Career Transition
The White Box Club™—appropriately named after the daunting white boxes many employees receive to “pack up their things”—was created to provide support, encouragement, and networking opportunities to anyone who has found themselves laid off, unemployed, or in career transition.
The White Box Club Handbook was written to provide hope, encouragement, and inspiration to anyone laid off, unemployed, or in career transition. Join life transition coach Michael Thomas Sunnarborg as he shares stories, simple tools, and exercises designed to help you know yourself, clarify your direction, and align yourself to your ideal career.
The White Box Club™ Twin Cities, covers a wide variety of topics, and meetings are held on a weekly basis at various locations. See Meetup.com/The-White-Box-Club-Twin-Cities-Meetup/ for up-to-date meeting dates, locations, and information.
Wednesdays, 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Locations vary throughout the twin cities metro area.
The White Box Club™ meetings create opportunities to learn from industry experts and meet others who are in career transition or thinking of new career options. In addition, you can meet people whose job it is to provide you with resources and support specifically during your career search.
Each meeting of TWBC includes introductions, a topic presentation, coaching tips, and time for networking and making new connections.
We look forward to seeing you at a future Meetup!
