Time:   1:00 PM EST
Register for the Webinar!

Whether you are a recent engineering school graduate or a seasoned manager, if you don’t have clear goals, you may be setting yourself up for disappointment.  Career goals are an absolute must because they act as a destination for your career.  Think of this analogy: you get into your car to drive somewhere that you have never been before; what piece of information do you need to get there?  Yes – an address! 

A goal is an address for your career.  Without this address, every time you approach an intersection (or a decision in your career) you’ll never be sure which way to turn.  Knowing WHY you want to achieve a goal is just as important as setting goals, if not more.  You’ll also learn three very specific steps to setting clear goals that you can use immediately upon completion of this webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the importance of setting career goals,
  • Be able to define what success means to you,
  • Have a simple formula to establish goals that align with your values, and
  • Be able to create SMART goals.

Register for the Webinar!

Professionals of all ages are faced with career and life changing decisions every day.  In order to create an extraordinary engineering career you must make the right decisions for you, while supporting the organization you work for and the clients you serve.  This interactive webinar will walk you through a goal setting process that you can utilize to help make critical career decisions and will also serve as a credential planning process.

Furthermore, at the end of this webinar, using the process provided you will be able to identify the right credentials for you, so you can start to pursue them and change the course of your career forever.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how to identify the benefits associated with different types of credentials,
  • Determine how to select credentials that will build your credibility,
  • Distinguish between different graduate degree options, both technical and managerial.

Successful engineering professionals build authority and are seen as experts in their fields.  One way to do this is to speak in front of audiences regularly.  Whether you speak at client meetings, community events, conferences, or job interviews, presentations are essential to building your expertise.

Whether you are terrified of public speaking or looking to sharpen your skills, this webinar will help you build authority and improve your confidence and effectiveness as a presenter.

Learning Objectives:

  • Build your expertise in the industry,
  • Sharpen your goal and create a plan to achieve it with your presentation,
