LAID-OFF EMPLOYEES OFFERED SEMINAR ON CREATING THEIR OWN AT-HOME INFORMATION BUSINESS

 AUBURN, Ill., July 12 /PRNewswire/ -- There is a life after layoff! At least one major U.S. corporation is offering its laid-off employees an innovative choice for a better future -- an Information Age alternative. Displaced employees are being offered the seminar "How To Create Your Own At-Home Information Business" which is available on-site or on videotapes. This unique seminar shows people how to create their own information business using their personal computer. The information fields covered in the "How to Create Your Own At-Home Information Business" seminar include Desktop Publishing, Consulting, Self Publishing, Information Brokerage, Electronic Publishing and Newsletter Publishing.
 "It's refreshing to see forward-thinking companies offering their displaced workers an alternative to traditional out-placement services," said Patrice Laughlin, president of Technical Group, Inc., in Auburn, the company which developed the seminar.
 "Because of the downsizing of corporate America, more companies are using seminars such as ours to help their employees find new employment opportunities," Laughlin continued. "This is a proven method. Ameritech Services, through its Baby Bells in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and Wisconsin, has sponsored our seminar to the general public since 1991."
 According to 1992 statistics from LINK Resources Corp., a national research company, the use of modern technology for a part-time or full- time office in the home is reality to 39 million workers today. Millions of Americans are choosing self-employment over unemployment.
 "Everyone is an expert in one or more areas by virtue of their training, experience, special interests or hobbies," said Laughlin. "Information is the new currency of America and people are using it. Substantial opportunities exist for establishing a business in the collection, processing and marketing of information."
 Technical group, Inc. has its offices in suburban Springfield, Ill., and can be reached at 1-800-635-9675.
