ABSTRACT: "Hirable for Life - Maintaining Globally Competitive Engineers and Scientists"
Hirable for Life (H4L) is a half-day, instructor-led training class that teaches the specific actions that experienced engineers and scientists can take to maintain and enhance their global competitiveness. Those just starting out in their tech careers can benefit by learning how to put themselves on a proven path to maintaining their competitiveness throughout their careers.
Attendees will learn five keys to remain hirable in good economic times and in bad. They will learn the five actions to take to support these keys. Each action is described in detail, with examples. In-class exercises help to reinforce the concepts. The students will have the opportunity to create their own personalized action plan for transforming their current level of competitiveness.
