ATD Employee Learning Week Event: Let's Talk About...Navigating Career Transitions

Have you successfully navigated a major career transition in the past?  Come share your wisdom.

Are you currently going through a career transition? Come to learn from others who’ve gone through what you’re going through.

This “Let’s Talk About….” Employee Learning Week Event is an evening for sharing challenges, insight, questions, and recommendations around career transitions including, but not limited to:

  • Transitioning into L&D/TD from another field or industry
  • Transitioning from one specialization to another within L&D/TD
  • Transitioning from individual contributor to a leadership role
  • Transitioning to working for yourself (creating your own consultancy)
  • Transitioning to working in L&D/TD as a side gig to another full-time career
  • Transitioning from school into the workforce

Several seasoned Talent Development professionals with experience successfully navigating career transitions themselves and in coaching people going through career transitions will be in attendance to facilitate the discussions including:
