YP Week Risky Business

This event is co-hosted by Young Nonprofit Professionals Network - Madison and Madison Magnet as part of Young Professional Week 2016! Reserve your spot here.

The Millennial Generation is especially driven to work for their passion, which can mean leaving a job if it is just not the right fit or you have outgrown your position. Sometimes you have to take a risk to find your passion. Join us for a night that will help you prepare for a transition whether it be soon or further down the road.

Part 1: LinkedIn is one tool that can be essential for a career transition. It's important that your profile showcases your personal brand and is continually updated based on your situation. Additionally, LinkedIn can be the best tool for finding a connection in a company or position that you admire. Corinn Ploessl, Marketing Coordinator at Wegner CPAs is an avid LinkedIn user and will walk you through some quick tips for ensuring your profile is current and projects the image you want to be remembered for.

Part 2: Mark Richardson of Unfinished Business LLC will walk guests through the sensitive issues surrounding career transitions, addressing these and other questions:

How do you leave a job gracefully?
When is the right time to go?
What do you need to complete before you can say goodbye?
