Each biweekly meeting is facilitated by an Experienced Career Coach and features a new topic! Meetings include a presentation and hands-on workshop on topics relevant to career transition, job search, guest speakers, access to hiring managers, ample opportunity to network, and 1-1 coaching guidance.
