-- Better manage your current situation, while you plan your next step

-- Decide whether a buyout really is for you and what to do if you take it

-- Find out how to stay in the industry or translate skills to a new career

-- Use sourcing, networking and other tools to create the career you want.

Dates: Monday, October 6; Tuesday, October 14; Monday, October 20 and Monday, October 27

Time: 6-8 p.m.
