Rod Colon, a career strategist and Theresa Hummel-Krallinger, a laughologist, will be speakers for the seventh annual Joseph’s People Retreat. The event will be held from 2 to 6:30 p.m. Feb. 17 in the McShain Conference Center at Malvern Retreat House, 315 South Warren Avenue, Malvern.
The theme of this free event for those who are unemployed or underemployed is “How Faith is an Integral Part of Your Job and Your Career Success.” Faith can sustain those searching for work. There will be sessions on how faith is an asset to struggle, and how to put faith into action. A sit-down dinner will be served and Mass will follow for those who would like to attend.
Colon founded the job search paradigm of “CEO of ME, Inc.” and Rod Colon Consulting in 1977. He travels worldwide speaking to professional groups and colleges, helping people to “own your career.” He graduated from Georgian Court University with a B.S. in business administration and MA in theology and pastoral theology.

She is president and board member of the Greater Philadelphia ASTD (American Society for Training and Development) and a faculty member at Temple University.
