Career Center
If you are joining us in Atlanta in May, stop by and see me in the Career Center. There’s a lot going on there this year! 

Career Coaching 

Sign up for a free 45-minute session with one of our fantastic career coaches. Coaching will be taking place from 12 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday, and 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday. 

Group Coaching 

If you don’t want a one-on-one session, stop by on Monday at 1 p.m. for a group coaching session, or attend a Resume Review roundtable on Wednesday at 10 a.m. with three of our experienced coaches.  

Book Signing 

All our coaches contributed a chapter to our recent book, Find Your Fit: A Practical Guide to Finding a Job You’ll Love, so we thought it would be fun to have a book signing with them right after the group coaching session on Monday at 1:45 pm. Participants will receive a $2 coupon for Find Your Fit. 

Head Shot Lounge 

Get a free professional head shot on Monday and Tuesday from 12 to 4 p.m. Stop by when you have 30 minutes available. 



Throughout the conference, we have sessions scheduled in the Career Center. 

On Monday at 10:45 a.m., Brandon Smith from Emory Executive Education will discuss the traits of workplace rock stars. Cheryl Lasse will be there on Tuesday at 10 a.m. to show you our new Skill Tracker tool, which allows you to measure your skills against The ATD Competency Model. We’ll have Jennifer Naughton there to talk about the Certified Professional in Learning and Performance credential on Monday at 2:30 p.m., and Holly Batts will answer your questions about our new Associate Professional in Talent Development credential on Tuesday at 1 p.m. 

No matter where you are in your career journey, visiting the Career Center located in Exhibit Hall B-4, right near the entrance to the Exhibit Hall. On Sunday, the EXPO won’t be open, but the Career Center will be operating. Just enter the Exhibit Hall using entrance B-4b.
