16 Apr 2014, by Kylie Munoz in Event Archive

Life is too short and you are too talented to sit and wait for your boss, a mentor or fate to boost your career to the next level. There is no guarantee that someone “older and wiser” is ever going to give you appropriate marching orders or come up with something brilliant for you to do. Stop waiting.

Join us May 6 from 12-1 p.m. and get tips on how manage up and pave your own path to success without even leaving your desk.
