With the upcoming Ascend National Convention coming to DC in August, the Greater Washington Chapter is offering this workshop to provide guidance to our members on how to make the most of their time there. One of the main reasons that people attend a conference is for the networking opportunities. In our first panel, join a panel of Senior Professionals from the DC area who will share their tips on how to make a great impression at networking events that can lead to a meaningful professional relationship.
In our second panel, join a panel of Recruiters for a discussion on how candidates make themselves stand out at a career fair. Get the inside scoop on what recruiters look for and have the opportunity to directly ask them questions on hiring processes.
Executives and Recruiters from PNC Bank, PwC, Capital One, Boeing, and Morgan Franklin will be joining the discussion. Food and refreshments will be provided.
