    The keys to a successful career transition are knowing what you want, having a plan to get it, and then executing that plan. Sound simple? Not so. If knowing "how" to do something were enough by itself we'd all be rich and thin!

    This session will help you figure out how your skills and interest translate into a new career path. Whether you're in marketing or engineering, high tech or manufacturing, this workshop will help you find out where you'll fit next.

    In addition to gaining insight and direction, this interactive workshop will give you the inspiration, and the means to achieve your goals. You'll leave this workshop knowing:

    • How to effectively use informational meetings.
    • How listening can be your most powerful career transition tool.
    • The top 6 qualities that hiring managers value. (Hint: Technical skills aren’t #1)
    • How to make your resume a magnet for future opportunities.

    This is a members only event. If you'd like to learn more about membership or would like to join, please visit our membership page.
