Success Stories from the Job Hunt
with Mika Yamashita, Ken Schoppmann and John Wilhelm Jr.
This special edition of the Monday speaker series features a panel of successful job seekers who share their stories from the employment front.
The panelists come from a range of different work backgrounds -- a finance specialist, an executive with associations, and a program analyst/budget analyst. They all went through a career transition period -- and came out of it successfully.
They will discuss:
>>What lessons were learned about navigating the mid-career search for a new role in a new organization?
>>What resources or training made the most difference?
>>What mistakes did they have to correct before they could land the job they really wanted?
>>What was the biggest challenge they each had to overcome?
