The meeting and event industry has been greatly impacted by COVID-19 and the resulting financial crisis. Some colleagues have been furloughed or laid off, and even those who have remained employed are taking stock of their career path. What now? Do we maintain the path we’ve been on; do we remain in the industry and take on a different role, or will we abandon this industry altogether?
In our September program, we’ll be joined by two well-known executive recruiters who will help us make sense of it all. Topics will include the best way to polish your résumé, tips on networking, the importance of social media, whether to become independent and/or start your own business, and how to take advantage of this turbulent time.
Join us, bring your questions, and participate in a thought-provoking discussion.
