The Brown Club of Silicon Valley

Presents a workshop on Accelerating Your Career Aimed at Young Alumni

School doesn’t teach you how to thrive in the job market. You may notice that some people seem to get all of the promotions and juicy projects, even if they’re no smarter than you. What do they know that you don’t? What will put your career on the fast track in your current job? What is your career path, and how can you reach your professional goals quickly? This three-hour workshop offers eight essential skills and techniques that will boost your career, presented by an instructor who distills his 25 successful years in corporate America and extensive entrepreneurial research into an effective strategy for your professional ascent.  

You’ll learn how to: 
 - Garner recognition for your contributions
 - Land the “right projects” 
 - Earn your managers’ favor
 - Get a raise 
 - Chase—and seize—the next promotion 
 - Chart a career path 
 - Navigate a culturally diverse workforce 
 - Work effectively and efficiently 
 - Balance your career and personal life for maximum fulfillment
