AUGUST 27 | International Career Industry Trends

After careers industry professionals from 12 countries gathered in Madrid for the CTL Symposium in May of 2018, there was great interest in gathering quarterly to discuss international career trends.

The call is open to all careers industry professionals (coaches, brand strategists, writers, consultants, and beyond) from all environments (private practice, small business, University, corporate, etc.) and is a way to help you stay current, learn some new tricks, and share some of your own wealth of information.

CTL Board Members Ruth Winden (UK) and Maike Hennig (Spain) will facilitate a conversation around career development and management in a multicultural context. Colleagues from around the globe will have an opportunity to compare strategies and best practices.

The recording will be sent to those who register. (Note: This is specially scheduled for our European / international colleagues and is at 6 am US-ET.) RSVP Today

SEPTEMBER 17 | Resume & Profile E-Summit: Eluding Ageism: Writing Strategies for Clients Age 50+

Job seekers age 50 and above are one of the largest groups in the workforce ... and they need help to sell their experience without opening the door for age discrimination.

In this E-Summit, Marie Zimenoff and Jan Melnik will provide strategies for resume writers to help clients who are struggling to present their experience without revealing their age, who are tired of hearing they're "overqualified," and are desperate for an employer to see their value instead of the added cost of hiring an "older" worker.
