MULTI-CHAPTER MEETING | The Art of the Pivot: A Project Manager's Blueprint for Career Transition and Work-Life Balance

Leadership = Power Skills

Feeling burnt out in your current role? Ready for a change in your daily routine? It may be time to transition into a new career role, whether that be Project Management or another growing industry - the same rules apply! Career transitions can be complex and in some cases require a lot of upfront planning. The first step to any career change is to lay the foundation for the journey you will embark upon. During this session, we will discuss how to map out your career transition, transform it into a real project, and the steps to take before you click the “apply” button.



Learning Objectives:

  • Building a career transition map
  • Self-assessment and career goal setting
  • How networking and connections play a pivotal role in career transitions
