Halihax June Event: A Discussion on Career Growth
June 9 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm ADT$11.62
Join us June 22nd at Garrison Brewing Company for an evening focused on career growth
About this event
Navigating career decisions is difficult, and planning your career is almost impossible. At this month’s Halihax event, we have three great speakers discussing the key soft skills and things you need to consider to grow your career, whether entering management or continuing as an individual contributor (where you’re not managing people).
We’ll hear from our speakers on the common situation of having to choose between management and a technical role beyond senior individual contributor, and specifically how those critical soft skills play a huge role. We’ll walk through best practices for new managers, what it looks like to step into management (and lessons learned along the way!), and how to navigate the commonly fuzzy nature of growing into a Staff+ role.
This event will be hosted at Seaport Garrison Brewing Company with snacks and refreshments provided by Halihax, and our sponsors.
