If I Only Knew X: Free Backchannel Resources for Building Career Relevant Skills

Have you ever missed out on a job opportunity? Want to keep your skills current even if you aren't actively looking? Can't afford to attend all the relevant professional development conferences? Aren't really sure where to begin? 

Learn how to find the free formal and informal resources to build both hard and soft skills, or just stay current on relevant trends in learning & development. This interactive session includes how to attend conferences virtually, the power of your library card, get bragging rights for Ivy League schools, and much more. Join us whether you have a specific "X" in mind or want to learn how to identify "X."

  • Identifying X

  • Direct and Indirect Ways to Find X (tag clouds, hashtags, and MOOCS, oh my!)

  • The Caveat Emptor of X

  • Practicing and Expanding on X

About The Speaker

When her job was off shored in 2007, she not only earned her PMP certification, but developed a series of talks and workshops on LinkedIn for job seekers and recruiters, as well as other targeted topics on career development. More recently she's worked as an instructional designer specializing in online learning development, and is starting a technical communications and training consultancy called Know.Smarter.Solutions.
