Career Exploration (Early Career Professionals)
The Next Step (Experienced Professionals)
This panel is designed for “second” and “third act’ for mid-career/experienced professionals who are seeking to make a change but don’t know how or are apprehensive due to current responsibilities (spouse, children, company, etc.). We will hear from those that made the change. The discussion will answer questions such as: how did you pivot is there an appropriate window, advantages and disadvantages to starting your own firm as opposed to climbing the corporate ladder, what skills/certifications/education should you focus on sharpening, as well as considerations for joining a smaller/mid-sized firm from large firm and vice versa. This session will run concurrently with the Career Exploration Session.
