If you fit in either category, please join us at the Mentoring Breakfast to engage in informal, one-on-one conversation related to career development and, if desired, to find an appropriate mentor-mentee match. No sign-up needed; breakfast will be served!
Career Development Sessions
The goal of this year’s career development program is to
help participants develop skills in collaboration
and communication, giving them the
experience and tools they need to become the team players and team
leaders that human resources professionals and top-level management are
seeking. AAPS is creating an interactive career development program that encourages participants to discuss their
questions and real-life problems with their peers, and to experiment with new
skills. Don’t miss these sessions!
