Topic:  How to Make Yourself Indispensable to Your Employer

We are just now coming off another downturn in the engineering community here in southwest Texas. Things may be looking up for the immediate future, but economies are always cyclical.  Have you noticed how some “lucky” people seem to stay employed even when things go south? What if you could make your own luck? What if you could take steps now that will make your employer want to keep you onboard, even if it means putting you on overhead? You can! In this talk, Terry shares tips and strategies that have worked for her and others who have had the foresight to become indispensable.

Never Get Laid Off Again:  they’ll jump through hoops to keep you, regardless of the Economy!
