Partnership Helps Professionals in Career Transitioning Process

Beginning in January, Penn State Great Valley's Alumni Society will partner with MyCareerTransitions, an all-volunteer job counseling group, to provide a free, monthly forum for school students and alumni to learn job search strategies, exchange information, and develop networking relationships.  Professionals from the community also are invited to attend.

This partnership represents a superb opportunity for professionals in career transition to leverage the combined resources of the two groups for valuable professional development and skill building. MyCareerTransitions was founded in 2005 by Penn State alumnus Bart Ruff. "The purpose of the group is to be a resource for professionals who, despite successful careers, simply don't know how to navigate a downsizing or other career change. As a Penn State Great Valley alum, I am pleased to be collaborating with Great Valley's Alumni Society," says Ruff.

Meetings are held the second Saturday of every month (except August and December) from 9:45 to 11:45 a.m. at 30 E. Swedesford Rd., Malvern. For more information or to register, visit
