A free Employment Advisory program.
LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center (lower level)
The single most important thing you can do to manage your career—and, for most, the biggest challenge—is to develop a network. How do you meet people, and how do you tell them what they need to know so that you can identify new contacts and move your career forward?
Instructor Win Sheffield will begin the evening with tips on how to present yourself comfortably in a few short sentences (an elevator pitch) to engage your listeners. You will then have the opportunity to meet with others and practice your pitch. It is useful to come prepared with business cards or index cards with your contact information.
