·    The ins and outs of networking to strengthen and advance your career

Career management is a lifelong process of planning your career that includes establishing personal goals, then coming up with strategies to achieve them.   Career management can start as soon as high school, before your career actually starts. It can involve choosing a college and selecting a major. It can also start after you've completed your education as you lay out a landscape for your career – and your life. It can also start in mid-life, even if you're already ten or twenty years into your career field (or switching careers).  

It's never too early or late to start planning and managing your career, and it's never too early or late in your career to take this course.   We'll start at the very beginning and talk about career planning and development. Next, we'll dive straight into your career and teach you the skills and strategies you'll need to put into place to turn that plan into the successful career you want.
