One sunny way of looking at the economic downturn is that it serves up all kinds of opportunities for reconsidering your choice of career, such as it may be.
Perusing Council President Garcetti's CD-13 updates a few days ago, I came across an interesting event that will take place this evening:
On Wednesday, January 13, the City of Los Angeles's Human Services Department will host a forum and resource fair for women interested in job training opportunities in non-traditional careers. The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Immanuel Presbyterian Church (3300 Wilshire Blvd.). It is free and open to the public. For more information, please contact the City of Los Angeles Human Services Department at 213/978-1840.
My, my, Chicken Corner said to herself. A new, nontraditional career sounds awfully tempting. Even just to know what it is: Goodyear Blimp pilot? Facebook consultant? Designer of jewelry for rent-a-pets? iPhone orchestra director?
Joking aside, I may be the first one in attendance.
