New professional development opportunities are being designed regularly - so check this page frequently for updates! Comments like these are not at all uncommon from those who participate:
|I thought I’d just say how much I enjoyed the class. I found it very informative and to be at just the right level – not too basic / not over my head. I actually came away feeling that this is something I wish I had learned 10 years ago. For example, if this had been presented every two years or so (during times when we were hiring every year) it would have been good to learn it right away and then see it again two years later and be able to ask far more intelligent and insightful questions having been working in the industry for those two years.
