The Start-Up of You | Creating your Career (Updated 1/10/13)
7:00 pm – 8:00 pm, Monday, January 14 (2013), Mary Graydon Conference Room 245
Thinking about starting a company one day? You already have: your career is your first and most important business to run.
Your skills are your product, your potential employers are your customers, and your salary is your revenue. So whether or not you want to start a new company, you are always at the helm of at least one start-up: your career.
Renowned entrepreneur and investor Reid Hoffman and entrepreneur/author Ben Casnocha present a new blueprint for managing your career. You will learn the best practices of some of the most successful start-ups on the planet (like PayPal and LinkedIn), and how these strategies can be applied to your career -- no matter your industry or job function. You will learn how to launch career plans amid uncertainty; how to change jobs based on what you learn; how to generate breakout opportunities; how to take intelligent risks; and how to build an effective professional network. Most of all, you will learn how to *think* like an entrepreneur of your own life, and take control of your professional future.
