One of the biggest challenges for talent development professionals is gaining the experience you need to land your next job. You end up wasting years in the wrong jobs…ones that do little to help you move up in your career. Most of the questions I receive are about where to get experience when you have limited opportunities in your current job, and what experience would be worthwhile. Once you figure out what experience you need for your next move, the answers to these questions become easier. 

If you're going to be hired or promoted, hiring managers need to feel confident you can do the job and are a good long-term investment for the company. Your selection comes from having relevant experiences that can demonstrate your readiness for the position. 

Join Vivian, contributing author of ATD’s popular career guide, Find Your Fit: A Practical Guide to Landing the Job You’ll Love, for an engaging and insightful program as she shares practical strategies from her chapter, “Gaining Experience and Moving Up.” 

If you want to move ahead in your career, this is a webcast you don’t want to miss.
