5 Reasons to Visit the ATD22 Career Center

Thursday, April 28, 2022

With the Great Resignation upon us, there is no better time to further your career within your current organization or find a new role outside your organization. The career development team at ATD offers tools for your professional development. During the ATD International Conference & EXPO, find us in the Career Center (W202, Sunday 12–4 p.m., Monday and Tuesday 9 a.m.–5 p.m., and Wednesday 8 a.m.–3:15 p.m.).


This year, we welcome back our ICF-credentialled coaches in-person and online. For many attendees, this free, 45-minute coaching session is their favorite perk of the conference. Speaking with a credentialled coach opens you to new perspectives and possibilities. Any topic is welcome—it doesn’t have to be restricted to work! Spaces are limited. Sign up for your session at the Career Center while they last.

Headshot Lounge

Bring your best suit, and take a free professional headshot in our lounge. Every year, the ICF sponsors a professional photography service for conference attendees. Slots are available Monday and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Stand-by space is extremely limited. Sign up ahead of time at


Resume Roundtables

Workshop your resume with our interactive small-group sessions. Peers and professionals offer their feedback to transform and polish your resume. You don’t need to be looking for a job. It’s best practice to keep your resume updated at all times. To receive the most value from this session, bring 10 hard copies of your resume. Printers are available at the FedEx Business Center in West C Lobby.
