Professional Development Event:Taking Control of Your Career

Posted on

This is just a reminder that this month’s Professional Development virtual chapter meeting we have MVP, PASS Board member, and all-around badass Jeremiah Peschka (Blog | Twitter) presenting on Taking Control of Your Career. Here is the abstract of the presentation:

Raises, promotions, and job offers don’t happen by accident; you need a plan. Through careful planning you can create and reach impressive goals. But what’s the point of reaching your goals if nobody notices? “If you build it, they will come” doesn’t apply when you’re building your career.

In this session Jeremiah Peschka will show you:

  • How to set achievable goals
  • The importance of planning your career
  • Methods for recording and communicating your accomplishments

When: June 16th, 2010
