Whether you’re working and not loving your current path, have a window of opportunity to decide your next direction or are struggling to land a role, this event is for you. Our featured speaker ― a career coach and CEO ― will share how to consider changing career directions, debunk limiting career mindsets, walk through a proven career exploration process, review job search best practices and more. To reach your potential, you’ll want to master these three keys to success: your mindset, accountability and practical strategies. This talk will help you optimize each of these critical areas. The presentation will take about 30 minutes, leaving the remainder of the hour for your questions.
