Your Successful Career Starts with an Easy to Follow Career Plan!

The world of careers is vastly different than it was just five years ago―more choices, more competition, and relentless change in how we define work-life. It can be difficult to understand our options and plan for a prosperous future.

Do you have a career plan?

Most people don’t, and as a result, they stumble from one job to the next never connecting the dots nor following a strategy that will lead them to greater opportunity, financial rewards, and personal happiness.

Brian has witnessed this firsthand in managing the human relations department overseeing an organization with 24,000 employees! He knows what it takes to succeed and fail! Brian will make you aware of three distinct but interconnected stages your career will share the following things you need to do to launch and lead a successful career.

  • Things you need to know about building a career plan.
  • Conduct a career inventory and evaluate your career ecosystem.
  • Fuel and support you will need to reach your career goals.

You will walk away from this presentation with an understanding of new ways of finding jobs, new methods to build careers that last, and a new definition of “work” that embraces life-satisfaction and happiness..
