More articles come out every day about the "resume of the future" and how LinkedIn, other social media, ATS, AI, and other technologies are disrupting the hiring process. What should a resume look like today and what will they look like in the future?

Join this lively discussion by a panel of ACRWs and MRWs to explore what's next! Open to resume writers, coaches, and all other colleagues in the careers industry. RSVP Today.

AUGUST 27 | International Career Industry Trends

After careers industry professionals from 12 countries gathered in Madrid for the CTL Symposium in May of 2018, there was great interest in gathering quarterly to discuss international career trends.

The call is open to all careers industry professionals (coaches, brand strategists, writers, consultants, and beyond) from all environments (private practice, small business, University, corporate, etc.) and is a way to help you stay current, learn some new tricks, and share some of your own wealth of information.

CTL Board Members Ruth Winden (UK) and Maike Hennig (Spain) will facilitate a conversation around career development and management in a multicultural context. Colleagues from around the globe will have an opportunity to compare strategies and best practices.

The recording will be sent to those who register. (Note: This is specially scheduled for our European / international colleagues and is at 6 am US-ET.) RSVP Today.
