Overview

The world of work has blown up, and with it, the old framework of career development.

As our market fell to pieces at the dawn of 2009, many people were afraid that they no longer could have significant, stable and financially viable careers. While it is true things aren't like they used to be, the upside is that there are many new ways to think about work and options for more significant and relevant careers.

In this Webcast program, work expert Pamela Slim will discuss the concept of your Body of Work, and how it can energize and expand options in the next stage of your career.

What You Will Learn

What is a body of work, and how does a traditional career path fit into it?
  • What new work opportunities are available today that didn't exist 5 years ago?
  • How to contribute more value to your current job, even as you grow in a new direction
  • How to integrate many aspects of your life: your work, your network, your volunteer efforts, your parenting and your hobbies in a way that enhances the quality of your life and makes a bigger impact in the world 
  • How to create and share great content that solves problems you care about and makes you more attractive to employers and business partners

While attending this program is FREE, reservations are required.
