Program: Your job search today, your career path, and how you manage both, require new approaches from just a few years ago. The combination of the internet and changing economies have created new opportunities and challenges in finding the right job. Today you need to take control of not only maintaining your job skills but also your personal network of contacts. How to approach the job market and job search today will be discussed to help both the new graduate and experienced professional.
