"Build Your Career"

When pursuing a job in your target industry, there are a myriad of things outside of your immediate control. Some examples of these are technical expertise, years of experience, or industry knowledge. I’m here to tell you that these don’t matter. This seminar outlines a blueprint for helping you to get a job, build a professional reputation, and even increase your income. In this seminar, we will cover: The top three mistakes recent grads make, and how to avoid them; How to talk numbers and negotiate salary; Five things you can control today to drive career success.
