Career transitions lecture at the Côte Saint-Luc Public Library

Côte Saint-Luc, June 7, 2010 – Dr. Ada Sinacore, a leading authority on career issues, will give a lecture on career transitions on Thursday, June 10 at 6:30pm at the Eleanor London Côte Saint-Luc Public Library.

Career transition refers to the process of changing one’s professional life due to changes in the demand for certain kinds of jobs or for other reasons. With change also comes a chance for individuals to pave a new career path and transform a personal passion or hobby into a viable career option. For some this may translate into a return to school in a particular area of interest. In this lecture, Dr. Sinacore will examine the challenges and opportunities that arise in the process of occupational transitioning.

Dr. Sinacore is an associate professor at the McGill University Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology. She has more than 16 years of experience working in the U.S., Canada, and abroad and is internationally recognized for her expertise and extensive presentations and publications in social justice, career development, migration and immigration, pedagogy, and feminist psychology. She has presented at the Forum of Labour Market Ministers: Pan Canadian Symposium and is actively involved in research, scholarship and program development addressing career transitioning of diverse populations in Canada and abroad. She lives and works in Montreal.

Tickets for this program are $3.
