Secrets for Winning at Work: The Handbook for Emerging Professionals and Career Success

It’s not easy entering the workforce today. For the first time in history, four generations are sharing the workplace — and sometimes it feels like they are living in four different worlds. How can young professionals navigate through the Traditional Traditionalists, the Still Booming Boomers, the Xtra-Independent Gen Xers and your own generation, the Tech-or-Die Gen Ys? Lindsey Pollak — often called a “translator” among the generations — and seasoned veteran Kate White will use real-world examples to teach you how to navigate the workforce in a language that is friendly, current and actionable. Designed for Millennial generation professionals, this session will help you create a personal action plan for career success.

We will explore:

– Potential points of conflict at work and how to handle them;

– Ways to obtain and create the career opportunities you want/need
