"What do I want to be when I grow up?
February 21, 2017
SIM National Educational Help Series on Career Growth, Networking & Job Search

Since November 2016 the SIM National Members-In-Transition program has been holding monthly conference calls to help educate our members on various topics related to networking, job search, and moving your career forward. While this call is directed to our members-in-transition, all SIM members will benefit from joining these calls. 

For the February event, please join us on Tuesday, 2/21 at 12 PM EST for a call led by Larry Bonfante, entitled: "What do I want to be when I grow up?"

Many people who find themselves in transition immediately start looking for jobs that resemble their prior role. However you are not your business card! You are a combination of competencies, experiences, passions and preferences. A job is simply an opportunity to help an organization solve problems and leverage opportunities. This session will help you think about who you are, and how you can add value in helping an organization succeed.
