7 Tips for Summertime Career Development
Attend a Professional Conference
Professional conferences are a great way to get energized and renew your passion. It’s helpful to be surrounded by like-minded people. You can bounce ideas off of one another and learn new things, not to mention conference planners tend to choose really fabulous host cities. Why not take a mini vacation to Las Vegas to learn new skills and have a great time? Also, networking is key, and conferences are a great networking event. If you’re in school, check with your university for conference funding. Once again, your company may be willing to subsidize this career development effort if you present it as something they can benefit from, which they certainly can.
