Leveraging AI for Your Future Career Success

Online (Zoom) 

Grow Your Career Conference Webinar

With the rise of AI and related applications, AI technology has become readily available for the average person to use (think ChatGPT). The good news is that recruiters aren’t using AI (yet) to vet or reject job applications, so how can we stay with the game and optimize AI for our own work search or career development?

Join our panel discussion to hear a variety of viewpoints on how AI could be used by potential future employers, and a few cautions, as well as ideas on optimizing AI technologies for your career growth.    

Please note that this webinar is part of the 2024 Grow Your Career Conference, and you will have the option to register for this webinar separately from the in-person conference day.
