9th Annual Get Connected: Pivot Your Career with Networking

Tuesday, October 10 at 5:30pm to 7:30pm

White Stag Block
70 NW Couch Street, Portland, OR 97209

The average worker will hold 13 jobs in a lifetime, and 80% of jobs are discovered through networking. Whether you are a graduate student, recent graduate or have decades of experience, you have the most powerful, helpful resource available to land your next job or to advance your career—your network.

Come prepared to challenge your misperceptions about networking: “People are too busy to help” or “You have to be an extrovert to network.” During this interactive session learn to strategically leverage and build your network in unexpected ways.

Stacey Lane is a career coach who helps individuals with unique backgrounds figure out where they fit, how to market themselves and find a career that’s as interesting as they are. She’s reinvented herself professionally a few times—including quitting her corporate job, selling her house, moving across the country, and starting a business in a city where she had only had a handful of contacts. Known for her candid career guidance, her advice has appeared in local and national publications. Find her at www.staceylane.net and she invites you to connect with her on LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/staceylane.
