CAREER THOUGHT LEADERS (CTL) NEWS & EVENTS
March 13 | Industry Trends White Paper Release
Do you love to be up on the trends in the career industry? As a follower of Career Thought Leaders, I'm guessing you do. One facet of CTL's mission is to keep you up on those trends. For the past 9 years, we've created a white paper based on the insights from our annual trend-setting event, Career Jam: Where Experts Forecast The New & The Next.
This year, Career Jam focused in on specific global trends impacting careers (see graphic).
You're invited next Wednesday, March 13, at 11:00 am ET-US, to hear more about these megatrends and how your colleagues are seeing them impact our work ... and, what they are doing to stay one step ahead.
The best part? It's free and you can register to join live or get the recording sent to you.
