Finding key technical and management positions is more difficult than ever before. Those newly created positions supported by cash flow are no longer being created.

So, if you are looking to manage and/or lead others, or to find a key scientific or engineering position, you need to develop and execute a superior career marketing plan.
We will discuss some of the critical issues that senior scientists and engineers face in making career changes, such as:

Establishing career objectives
Planning multi-dimensional search
Developing outstanding resumes, cover letters, and telephone presentations
Targeting future employers (Government, Industry, Education)
Recognizing strengths and weaknesses
Evaluating Management and Profit & Loss skills
Determining key accomplishments
Networking contacts
Identifying website position openings
Dealing with Executive Search Firms

If time permits, a discussion of proven technique allowing better communication of pertinent accomplishments to potential employers.
