Career Support Group March 18 2017

LEVERAGING STRATEGY INSTEAD OF LUCK TO ADVANCE YOUR CAREER

  • Do you give thought to what you might be capable of doing or asked to do in the future?
  • Are you feeling stuck?

By participating in this month’s meeting, you will find yourself “taking charge” of your career rather than letting it unfold on its own.

You will learn how to see for your next job, promotion, or step in your life goals in a new context. You’ll discover not only how to think more broadly in your search, but how that leads to a wider net of opportunities. Our guest speakers will show you:

  • That leadership behaviors are prized by companies.
