Some of the topics we'll be tackling together:

  • How can you identify the best job for yourself?
  • How can you help yourself stand out from the masses when hunting for a job?
  • What are some resume and interview best practices for applying?
  • What are the best ways to handle salary negotiations?
  • What skills should be built to help develop yourself in your current job?
  • When should advancement be pursued and how? 
  • What are critical traits that need to be developed to keep us growing and moving?

BONUS: Immediately following the Panel discussion, we'll break out into discussion rooms to dig deeper on specific topics. Spend some more focused time with the panelists and ask some specific questions on your mind.
