Kennedy Information announces their acquisition of the preeminent authority on career development, transition and management -- the Career Masters Institute.

The Career Masters Institute has been formalizing and professionalizing the careers industry since its founding by Wendy Enelow in 1999. A published author, trainer and career consultant, Ms. Enelow explained that she founded Career Masters "to facilitate the professional exchange of information needed to meet the massive change, transformation and expansion currently happening within the careers industry." Ms. Enelow served as the association's Executive Director from 1999-2004 before stepping down to devote full time to writing, speaking and consulting opportunities within the careers industry.

In less than 10 years, Career Masters has become the leading association for career professionals. Susan B. Whitcomb, who served as Executive Director from 2004-2007, observed that "Career Masters' membership possesses a depth of expertise unmatched elsewhere, with more authors, thought leaders and highly successful career entrepreneurs than any other careers association." It is the first organization to bring together a worldwide membership of career coaches, career counselors, resume writers, outplacement consultants, recruiters, college and university career development personnel, and military and government career transition specialists within one space that connects every sector within the careers community.

At the request of Kennedy Information, Ms. Enelow is now returning as Executive Director to lead the association through its transition and the rapid growth projected by its new ownership. In 2007, the Kennedy/Career Masters team plans to launch a number of new strategic initiatives including a careers publishing division, a professional speaker's bureau, a series of teleseminars and webinars, and an outplacement division that will provide job seekers with access to some of the top career professionals worldwide.

The first major event to be hosted by the new Kennedy/Career Masters team is the 2007 CMI Annual Professional Conference scheduled for April 25-28, 2007, at the historic Brown Hotel in Louisville, KY. Speakers include a roster of the nation's most talented employment and careers industry professionals including Charles Ciccolella (Assistant Secretary of the Department of Labor), Liz Harvey of CareerBuilder.com, Lauryn Franzoni of ExecuNet, Peter Weddle (an authority on e-based job search and employment), Tony Lee of Adicio, Susan B. Whitcomb of Career Coach Academy, Pat Schuler of The Gemini Group and many others.
