*Presentation:* *"Being in Transition more than once"*

In this day and age of constant technological change and increased
competition, the likelihood of staying with a single employer throughout
your career is highly unlikely. It is now likely that you will find
yourself in transition more than one time.

So what can you do to prepare for such an impactful event? This month the
Breakfast Club will hold its 2nd Panel Format that will provide a variety
of "real life" transition viewpoints which include:
· Changes to their career approach based on multiple transitions
· The financial impact
· Skills they acquired - or needed to acquire.
· What advice/help did they get from their network
· "Best practices" based on previous experiences (What worked /
what didn't)
