NEWS & EVENTS
Making Diversity & Inclusion Part of Our Culture
Career Thought Leaders stands with our Black colleagues against racism and will be prioritizing and deepening the conversation around diversity, bias, and how we address those topics in our work.
We recognize that many in our community do not have an opportunity for diversity, equity, and inclusion training as part of a larger organization and that we need information on these topics specific to our work in careers, branding, and leadership.
The CTL Board is creating a plan to continually address a wide range of diversity issues and create space for challenging, actionable conversations.
We welcome your suggestions for topics, forums, and speakers. We are also pulling together resources specific to these issues in the workplace globally.
Please send any suggestions to Marie at email@example.com or use this link to set up a time for us to chat: https://my.timetrade.com/book/B46DN
One of the first steps is to integrate these conversations into our Associate calls. If you are an Associate, please watch your email for a survey to set a time for a conversation on July 13.
June 26| College Fridays Discussion
After hearing from so many on college campuses right now who are working with students and graduates, we decided to start a weekly event where you can listen to colleagues or recruiters and connect for collaboration with peers.
On June 26 we'll be Live (Facebook and YouTube) at 12:00PM US ET with job search expert and recruiter guests sharing about what students can do to be more successful in their job search!
July 2 | Jazz Up Job Search with an Infographic Resume
An infographic visually simplifies complex information. Why not help your clients simplify their resumes by using icons, graphs, and symbols?
While an infographic resume does not replace the traditional text version of the resume... yet, it is a growing trend to explore. When used while networking, an infographic resume provides a fresh and unique presentation of skills and experience.
And there are elements of infographic resumes that we can use on a traditional resume ... yes, even when applying online!
