2017 Career & Professional Development Events: 

  • February 23rd- Learn about how to evaluate a career change idea or plan and how to construct a transition strategy that fits your needs. Is your idea realistic and one you are willing to invest in? Will your plan ensure your success?
  • March 30th- Focus on how to develop/revise your resume and LinkedIn profile so it will show how you are the right person for the job. How can you express through branding that you are an obvious fit for a new role?
  • April 13th- While very few love the practice of “Networking” it is a very important skill in achieving professional goals and future success. This workshop is designed to eliminate the "awkward" while reigniting your appreciation for the power of connecting with others at networking events.
  • May 18th- Looking for important information to help make informational interviews feel more natural and engaging? Join us for this interactive workshop where we will evaluate your current network and help you create a road map for successful interactions and meetings.
