New Ways to Approach Financial Issues during the Job Search

40Plus of Greater Washington presents:

"New Ways to Approach Financial Issues during the Job Search"

Change is almost never easy, and job searches can be daunting, frustrating, scary and draining. In this presentation, Ilene invites attendees to view financial issues through a new lens, and offers a framework for decision making that clarifies a path forward.

In this session, participants will:

  • Gain a clearer understanding of their emotions and triggers around money, particularly in challenging times.
  • Define their “diamonds” and how to gain concurrence from partners/spouses, etc.
  • Leave with a framework for decision-making.
  • Learn in an interactive setting.

About the Speaker:

Ilene Slatko is the Principal of DSS Consulting, which provides business and financial literacy programming, as well as coaching services. She has over 25 years’ experience in the financial industry, including managing the flagship office of a major regional brokerage in Washington, DC. Over the course of her multiple roles in the industry, Ilene has been featured in national print and TV, highlighting her unique approach to building her business, educating clients and training employees.

In 2010, in the wake of the financial collapse and subsequent bankruptcies of numerous public companies, Ilene founded Delaware Shareholder Services, which served as the link between the bankruptcy court and global stakeholders. She was the only reporter inside the bankruptcy court live-tweeting to shareholders, allowing anyone to gain actionable insight into what was happening with their investments, in real-time.

A native to the DC area, she returned in 2017 and spends her time re-exploring the area; both the Capital Crescent Trail as well as the numerous arts and music venues locally. Ilene is managing director of the SecurCapital Foundation, a 501(c)(3) that funds organizations working on behalf of young people.
