Managing Your Localization Career

  • Aug 15, 2013 · 7:00 PM

IMUG maps and directions:
No webcast, but Google will record this.

The war for localization talent is hot. Come hear from a panel of stellar professionals in this field. Learn which skills, experiences and behaviors the panelists look for when filling key roles. (These are jobs you could be applying for!) Hear about emerging skills every localization professional should acquire in order to remain employable. Seek out answers to all your burning questions about managing your career within this very dynamic and competitive global market. This lively exchange will appeal to young professionals, senior executives and everyone in-between. Looking forward to seeing you there!
