(234a) Engineers Can Do Anything: Explore Your Passions and Catalyze Your Potential to Create Your Unicorn Career
We all face challenges at some points in our careers, whether we have been laid off, need to leave our current position due to either positive or negative stimuli, are looking for a promotion, or are eager to work in a completely different field or profession. But no matter the challenge, engineers have the competitive advantage to manage, survive and thrive because of your innate problem-solving skills. This presentation will address how to manage a career challenge and tackle it using your strengths as an engineer. We will explore options for handling especially challenging situations, like zombie bosses (who steal your work or malign your reputation) or a desire to make a mid-career change, and chart a specific, strategic course to achieve your goals.
