The San Francisco Professional Career Network's mission is to provide a forum for professionals to help other professionals in finding fulfilling, relevant and personally sustainable work.
We do this in various ways including motivational speakers, industry thought leaders, professional development coaches, recruiter panels, skill building workshops and good old fashioned networking. We attempt to look under every stone to find a lead that might move someone in the direction of that next job.
This week we will take a more conventional approach. We are happy to welcome Professor of Economics Dr. Robert Eyler, who will provide us a macro and micro view of where the economy stands at present and possible directions you can expect it to go.
Dr. Eyler will discuss the state of the global, national, and state economies and demonstrate how decisions at federal and state levels affect the Bay Area job situation. Dr. Eyler will give some hints how policies might affect our cities and counties in the decade ahead.
Dr Eyler will also provide some futurist items with respect to the global economy, and how the Bay Area can keep its long-standing competitive and comparative advantages.
There will be plenty of time for Q&A so bring your questions and lets see what we can learn to move us forward!
Look forward to seeing you on Tuesday!
