So I am following my own #profadvice and #unplugging while on vacation. However, I could not help but share my upcoming Seminars with Wagner College Office for Lifelong Learning called "How to Take the Next Step in Your Career" which are scheduled for evenings in November. All of the information is below and I will update this post with the link to the Wagner College page when it goes live in a few days. If you are interested in joining me at this seminar, please send me a chat message and/or a message below and I will make sure you get on the list to attend with us! Happy Hunting!
How to Take the Next Step in Your Career Workshops
Led by Lisa Vento Nielsen, MBA, PMP
Professor Nielsen is an executive, educator and an entrepreneur who has spent the last decade helping professionals like you identify and execute on their life plans with the appropriate tools for success. Her business, The Next Step, is a well-known local provider of all things career orientated and her blog and social media are looked to for help in finding the next step for many people. Also, she is currently providing a certificate course to our adult learners on Entrepreneurship: Building Your Own Business.
She has designed this seminar program as a career planning boot camp to help anyone in any career who is interested in growing professionally or for those who might be in need of retooling and finding new employment. She also specializes in helping people who have been out of the workforce re-enter for such reasons as childcare or other unforeseen issues. Her background in financial services and publishing industries and the over 15000 resumes she has reviewed all lend credence to the fact that she is a powerhouse in building your brand and achieving your next step.
This is meant to be a 3-part seminar workshop providing you with the tools and techniques you need to stand out from the crowd and achieve your next step in your career. You can choose to take just one of the seminars but it would be best for your career if you can take all three.
