Participated in a career day at PS 278 this week. Nine days after being laid off. Was a little worried about talking about careers to children without having a job. But it worked out fine. Was talking last week about what children these days need to know to deal with their careers with an assistant principal friend of ours. Specially since the future looks as if the uncertainty that has ruled the careers of my generation does not seem to be going away any time soon. I have not had a full time job, post college that lasted more than 3 years. And I know that that is not unusual. My contact list is full of smart, excellent communicator who are “consultants”.
More on this topic to come.
