Quick Tips in Our Interview with Recruiter Kelly Kay
Managing Your Career Journey
Every day, customer experience professionals talk about the customer journey, but rarely do we take the time to manage our own career journey. For most of us, career management is not something we are taught, or instinctively know how to do, but it’s critical to personal and professional success.
Drawing on more than 10 years of global experience in executive search, Kelly will share his insights and observations about the things you should know, but that very few are ever taught, about making important career decisions. The session will explore critical aspects of managing the career journey, giving you as an individual and a member of a team (or team leader) can succeed and help others to achieve similar success. Topics will include:
- The importance of telling your story in a compelling way,
- the value of (soft) leadership skills, and
- best practices/worst practices in professional development.
