Why attend Career Jam?
Beyond learning from and sharing with professionals across the industry, the outcomes from all these events will be compiled and published by the Career Thought Leaders Consortium in a white paper. The white paper will recognize the contributions of all Career Jam participants. In other words, you'll be published in a widely read industry document distributed to career professionals, media outlets, and job seekers by CTL.

Download the 2014 white paper to read the findings from last year's event.

New this year, all participants will also receive the industry's top research reports from Jobvite, SHRM, Gallup, and more; electronic copies of industry journals; and other resources for enriching discussion. You can review these before the event, bring them with you, and use them as reference materials as you assist clients and advocate for the careers industry.
