ASTDps: Career Exploration SIG
Monday, September 12, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM
The goal of this monthly SIG is to provide a supportive venue in which people who are in the midst of or contemplating a career transition can exchange information, ideas, and contacts as well as take advantage of the specialized knowledge of each other and of guest speakers.
The meetings are structured to allow participants to share their goals, progress, and challenges as they provide feedback, ideas, and possible networking contacts to each other. In addition, guest speakers will be invited to present topics of special interest (for example, "Learning and Development Trends in the Puget Sound Area," "Getting Past the Gatekeeper," "Writing Effective Cover Letters," and/or "Managing Your Retirement Account Between Jobs").
Given the highly participatory nature of this monthly SIG, it is limited to ASTD Puget Sound members, and to the first 9 people to preregister. See registration site below.
Currently owner of Northwest Creative Works, LLC, providing technical editing and document development services, and active Hopelink volunteer tutor. Previously Director of Instructional Design for AT&T Wireless and Director of Learning and Development for T-Mobile USA.
If you attempt to preregister and find that the SIG is already full, send an e-mail request to be put on the waiting list to Dawn Roe, VP SIGs at firstname.lastname@example.org
