Accelerating Your Career: Eight Essential Skills Workshop

  • Plug and Play Tech Center 440 North Wolfe Road Sunnyvale, CA, 94085 United States (map)

The 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 faster?

This 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.

Presented by Naeem Zafar '81, Professor of the Practice at Brown University and UC Berkeley.
