On September 21, 2010, the Ascend held an event, "Career Crossroads: Mastering the Transition”,   for its professional members which was co-hosted by Robert Half International (RHI). The event featured a panel of specialists from RHI as well as other recruiting firms, who discussed about what one should consider before embarking on a professional transaction, especially given today's economy. Topics that were of particular interests to the audience included:

· What steps should one take when planning a change and/or career transition?

· What risks and rewards should one be aware of when planning or going through a transition?

· How important are techniques such as leveraging one's network, and brushing up on skills and certifications?

· What are the pros and cons of relocating to a different country or transitioning into a new industry altogether?

Key take-aways from the event included:

- Focus on transferable skill sets which you can take with you

- Stay relevant

- Build on skill sets and look for other skills to improve on

- Focus on building relationships

Attendees also had an opportunity to network with others after the panel discussion.
