We couldn’t be more excited to welcome Dr. Dawn Graham as this year’s conference keynote speaker to discuss “10 Trends Impacting Job Seekers in the Future of Work.”

“The world keeps turning at warp speed for everyone – including our job-seeking clients,” says Graham. “As resume writers and career coaches, we must be up to speed on how we can support them in their career goals on the resume and beyond.”

Key takeaways for attendees include:

  • Data-backed information on what to watch in the market so that resume writers and coaches can best inform and support their job search clients.
  • Predictions, implications, and challenges impacting the market, job seekers, and hiring – and their effect on resumes/applications/qualifications.
  • Actions for remaining vigilant regarding rapid changes to the work environment, with steps to help clients untangle critical resources and provide learning for future job search and career success.

Dawn will introduce attendees to two new models—New Career Cycle and Three Drivers of Success as part of this interactive presentation.
