Pre-Dinner Speaker: Danny O’Rourke Learn from me, why you likely need to spend at least a little more time maintaining your career.
, what kind of idiot is in charge of this?
How about the CEO of your career? What kind of preventive maintenance list did he or she have for you?
Maybe that list comprises of:
- Do as good of a job as you can today, without killing somebody, and hope your manage never forgets and always rewards you for it.
Danny O’Rourke is going to talk about some lists he started for his past self that you can benefit from. Every credential he has doesn’t make him qualified to give this talk. Here are some things that did help this talk come to be:
Laid-off in Jan. 2016.
- Found that going from employed to unemployed-but-ready was far harder than imagined – thought all this time was available.
- Spent a fair amount of time around others in a similar situation.
- Listened to what my outplacement company had to say.
