NEWS & EVENTS

NOVEMBER 30 | Career Jam Registration Closes November 26

As a subscriber to the CTL weekly Happy Hour, we're guessing that you love to stay on top of the latest in the careers industry. Did you know that you could be a part of identifying and articulating the trends?

If you strive to be ahead of the trends that are impacting the careers industry, job search, personal branding, leadership development, recruiting, career advancement, career planning – the core of your work with clients – you will find like-minded colleagues at Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next!

We're celebrating the 9th year of this international event with new features and topics! You will learn about the 6 megatrends impacting the careers industry during an exclusive webinar on November 26. Whether you join us live or listen to the recording, you'll get the background information on the trends and tips on disrupting habits and questioning the status quo.

Then, on November 30th you'll gather with colleagues (virtually or in person at locations around the world) to brainstorm about how these trends are impacting–and will impact –the careers landscape. You'll network and share best practices for our work with clients in light of this new information.

How will artificial intelligence change recruiting, hiring, and job search? How will career services adapt to meet the needs of Millennials and the shift from career paths to portfolios? How will the rise of online education and a decreased focus on degrees change career advising and decision-making?

Join your trend-seeking and trend-setting colleagues to learn and share!
