Hudson Job Search will present "Overcome Obstacles, Fight for the Job you Want" with speaker Mark Gonska of Dise and Company on Oct. 3.

Discouragement, procrastination and rejection are common to every job search.° These may not be optional.° However, it IS possible to overcome most obstacles. °Speaker Mark Gonska delivers straight talk:

In almost every case the biggest obstacle is not the market, age discrimination or the economy.° The biggest barrier to job search success is between your left ear and right ear.

Gonska will tackle: Looking at "transition" in a new light; What's holding you back?; Why blaming others is toxic; and the power of "and" is countering every excuse.

Gonska is executive vice president and leads the Outplacement Practice for Dise & Company. He helps employers avoid the second most costly mistake they can ever make: retaining employees they should release.

Also known as America's Career Coach, he also works with groups on plant closings and job relocation projects nationally and globally. Gonska has helped over 8,500 people accelerate their career advancement.° You won't want to miss this dynamic presentation.
