Most professionals don't look beyond their current job or next promotion. After graduating from a reputable school with decent grades and a degree, you started your career to get "some good experience." You worked hard and advanced one or 2 levels up. So what's next? Is working hard and "letting your results speak for itself" getting you where you really want to be?
Come to the CASPA Career Development Mentoring Workshop to learn key steps to take control of your career path, accelerate your advancement and avoid career limiting moves (CLM).  This interactive workshop will be application oriented so you can assess your current situation and determine practical "next steps" in executing your Career Action Plan.
Key topics include:
  • How to maximize learning in your current role and create leverage for your next job
  • Assess how your skills requirements and success metrics change at different career levels
  • Target senior management roles in Sales, Marketing, R&D and Finance
  • How to shift your career from Engineering to Business

If your career feels like it's just coasting along with no clear destination, grab hold and take charge of your career lane changes!
