Topic: Career Growth Questions You’re Afraid to Ask
As a technical professional, you’re constantly bombarded with new opportunities. Some even sound like super exciting things you’d like to do! How do you know if they’re actually right for you? Even if you’re not actively seeking a job, this is an important question that we all need to answer. Drawing on real-life examples, this session will walk you through the career change and opportunity evaluation process. It will cover topics including benefits questions, intellectual property concerns, and assessing company culture. Most importantly, it will help you identify your career growth priorities and whether that seemingly shiny new opportunity meets them.
Dinner: Info coming soon!
