Whether you’re looking to make a career move or land a new job opportunity, this event focuses on providing you with career insights and ideas in a highly interactive format. When the economy starts to turn around, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.

In this program, you’ll:
• Understand why no amount of skill and talent alone can create your career success—it’s relationships that really count
• Create and use a simple system for reaching out to new people over and over so that the well never runs dry
• Learn how to network when you hate to network and reach out to new people even when you’re feeling shy
• Learn how to build a reputation for yourself that reflects your real capabilities
• Understand how to develop your expertise and become a resource and go-to person in your field
• Create output—a system for letting others (including your managers and recruiters) see your capabilities on a regular basis

FREE for Alumni Association members with advance registration, $10 for nonmembers and day of the event walk-ups.
