NeW is proud to offer our Professional Development Week again this year during the week of April 10-14, 2023.
Professional Development Week is a chance for you to receive FREE professional development tips to help you advance in the workplace. Throughout the week, we share professional advice on our social media pages (Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter) and provide new blog content here on our website with advice from how to say thank you after an interview to establishing routines in a remote job.
Tuesday, April 11 at 12:30pm ET – The Hard Questions
Navigating your professional career can be tricky at times. How do you determine salary ranges for yourself? How do you leverage your experience to move up in your career? How do you negotiate a raise? Join Lydia Ocampo from TalentMarket to discuss appropriate ways to answer all of these questions and more.
Wednesday, April 12 at 7pm ET – Networking as an Introvert
Do you sometimes get uncomfortable in large crowds? Does the thought of “small talk” make you cringe? Networking is a critical professional development skill, but it can be painful for those with more introverted personalities. For this session we are joined by Patricia Rausch, Vice President of Member Programs at National Association of Wholesaler-Distributors and Founder and Co-Host of Rules of Networking, to share practical tips for growing your network for the crowd-averse.
Thursday, April 13 at 12:30 pm ET – Time Management Strategies That Really Work
A wise person once said, “You and Beyonce have the same 24 hours in a day. It’s up to you what you do with it!” (Or something like that.) Time management is something most of us want to work on, so we turned to two of our successful (and busy!) alumnae to share their practical tips and tricks.
Friday, April 14 at 12:30pm ET – Leading with Effective Communication
We all know how important it is to have strong communication skills, but what does professional communication look like in our increasingly virtual world? Are things like email etiquette and formal office decorum a thing of the past? For this session we are joined by Chloe Anagnos Pierce, Director of Marketing and Communications for America’s Future, to discuss the do’s and don’ts of professional communication in 2023. Make sure to come with questions! This is a session you don’t want to miss.
