Conversation with Karen Seymour

Karen Seymour
Vice President
Challenger Gray & Christmas

Many large organizations and corporations offer outplacement assistance to their employees facing career transition.  Join us to learn more about the key steps to a successful transition from a career transition consultant who works with individuals who have been separated from their employers.  

What makes the difference between a brief transition and an extended search?  What are the best ways to connect to people who can assist you with your search?  What are some steps to avoid in your own career search?

Karen Seymour is a Vice President with Challenger Gray & Christmas, one of the largest and most active outplacement assistance firms in the country.
Prior to joining Challenger, Gray in 2005, Karen gained valuable experience with some of the most influential human capital management firms in the world.
