  SO YOU THINK YOU NEED A
CHANGE?
 The How’s and Why’s of
NETWORKING AND CHANGING CAREERS with
Howard Leifman, Ph.D. 
 

 
 

Join us for a career workshop with Dr. Howard Leifman, Ph.D., two-time SU grad and career development and coaching expert. Dr. Leifman will discuss the ins and outs of networking, changing your career, and staying on top of the ever-changing trends within your field.   

 
On average a person will change careers at least 3 times during their working life.  With technology changing at faster and faster speeds this means there will be an increase in people’s careers changing too. Jobs that exist today may not in 10-15 years, and jobs that no one has heard of might become the norm in the next 15 or so years. So staying on top of the trends and realities of one’s career is becoming increasingly more important.
 
In this workshop we will discuss making change, how to go about doing it through networking, and how networking can help you stay on top of change.
   
Topics discussed in this workshop will include:
  • What you need to know to be an effective networker

  • How to set up a career plan when you're new to the market

  • How experienced professionals can use networking to find a new job

  • Checking in: Where are you in your career and where do you need to be?
