Finding the Right Job for YOU

Hands down, searching for a new job is hard work and making sure it is the right job for you is even harder. With so many resources available, how do you choose how to spend your search time? Indeed’s mission is to help people get jobs and is connecting millions of people to new opportunities every day. Join this session to hear an expert guide you through some useful tools and resources, to maximize your search time, and find your next job.
Carmen Bryant, director of marketing, Indeed @indeed

Succeeding in a Male-Dominated Industry

Whether you are just getting your foot in the door, negotiating your next promotion and raise, or trying to secure a leadership position, working in a male-dominated field is a tough place to be a woman. With a lack of visible mentors and role models, how do you navigate your career? This session will be led by Tiffany Gray, who has fought these battles during her career and can share her lessons learned and the tangible strategies that can help you find success in the workplace.
Tiffanie Gray, VP, associate market manager, Wells Fargo @wellsfargo

2:45 pm – 3:15 pm

Your Networking Circle

No matter where you want to go in life, having a posse to support and mentor you will help you get there. Building these relationships takes work, but can be rewarding both professionally and personally. Join this session with an expert networker to learn how you can overcome any fears about networking, identify the people you need and the events to engage with, and how to find multigenerational supporters to create sponsorship so that you can develop a circle who will help promote your goals, level-up your career, and see your dreams no longer deterred.
Colette Pierce Burnette, EdD, president and CEO, Huston-Tillotson University @htprescpb
