In this CTL Associate Call, our CTL Board will be leading a discussion about how we as career service providers can "compete" as our field shifts. We'll talk about competing with large organizations that are starting to offer more services (like LinkedIn's new interview coaching and resume review services) ...
AND, for those in organizations and in private practice, how you can incorporate new technologies like AI coaching into your work and communicate your value above and beyond these types of tools.

The call is open to all CTL Associates and is a way to help you stay current, learn some new tricks, and share some of your own wealth of information. CTL Associates, watch for an email from Marie Zimenoff with call-in details.

You MUST be an Associate to participate. To read about all of the benefits and opportunities of becoming a CTL Associate ($399 lifetime fee), click here.
