Why wait for your future when you can start finding it today?

Mahatma Gandhi is credited with saying, “The future depends on what you do today.”

What will you do today to move toward more fully living an authentic life and achieving your goals?

One step is to visit the ATD Career Center, sponsored by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and located in Hall B1. The Career Center has a packed lineup of events on subjects such as honing your personal brand, targeting your resume for the position you desire, and enabling others to help you.

Here are a few activity highlights.

“Resume Reprogram Roundtable.” A coach for professionals in their L&D career, executives, and business leaders, Sarah Cannistra, also known as the Overnight Trainer, will lead attendees in auditing their resume during Sunday’s 12 to 1 p.m. session.
