Friday, January 07, 2011
Mercer University, Atlanta Campus
(This event was the first combined GACE/GCDA event! We were delighted to collaborate with GACE on this workshop.)
Did you know that most people consider themselves introverted in certain situations? Not surprisingly, job searchundefinedwith its high-energy demands for networking and interviewing skillsundefinedqualifies as one of those situations for many career-services clients. In our extroverted business culture, introverts can feel excluded, overlooked, or misunderstood. But being an introvert doesn't have to stand in the way of career success. Citing examples of highly successful leaders like Bill Gates and Warren Buffett, Jennifer Kahnweiler shows that introverts can build on their quiet strength and make it a source of great power. During this half-day workshop, Jennifer Kahnweiler will provide career coachesundefinedwhether Extroverting or Introverting in their own preferencesundefinedwith insight into the special challenges introverts face and how to help them successfully navigate their chosen career paths. .
