This month we are excited to have Jason Hoover, a local industry leader from Siemens to discuss career development opportunities and challenges within a large organization.

During this workshop, Jason will be focusing on three major areas:

1.      Career Success -Whether your goal is career advancement, leadership development or just  to enjoy what you do, there is a set of common skills required.  Jason will share with us tips for confident self-presentation, time management, strong communication and more.
2.      Corporate Environment - What is the difference between a job in a large private sector company vs that in a small startup? What to be prepared for in a corporate position?  Jason will share his insights about surviving and thriving in a large organization.
3.      Multinational Culture - Nowadays oversea work experience becomes more and more important in one's career development. Even if you are not planning to work in another country, you will have to be prepared for international business and dealing with people from other nations and cultures. Jason's experience in Germany will highlight how communication and collaboration can be greatly facilitated by understanding the workforce background and cultural differences.

Light refreshments will be provided.
