-Rick Sizemore, VR Workforce Studio Podcast Host
“Daring to Dream challenges people to take back their dreams about finding their career paths and creating opportunities for a quality life. For most of us, our work is at the center of our lives – it’s where we spend the majority of our time, where we find opportunities to build important relationships, and where we often discover our identities. Research tells us that the longer people are out of work, the harder it is to go back to work. If people are telling you that you can’t work, it can be tough to figure out the steps to find your way back, regardless of the reason for not working. While there may be other guides to finding a job, Daring to Dream fills a void by walking through a step-by-step process with practical strategies that instruct you on job-seeking skills while helping you reclaim self-confidence.”
