Hosted by: Professional Development Advisory Group

We remember 9/11 like it was last week. Many felt like their whole world was crumbling. People were glued to the TV set for updates and we expected life to never go back to normal. Things ultimately got better, but each of us was forever changed by the tragedy. Now here we are again where things have changed in a big way nearly overnight. You can't be alive and not be at least a bit unsettled about your career. However, there are things you can do to stay in control of your career and maybe even thrive during these challenging times.

All attendees will receive a 25-page COVID-19 Job Search Resource Guide. We'll discuss the following topics and more during this event.
  • How can I find companies that are actually hiring?
  • Do I really have to become a video interview expert?
  • How can I keep myself motivated?
  • How can I reinvent myself?
