Join us for the first meeting of the Golden Gate Chapter Career Discovery Group! Are you new to the field of Talent Development and have questions on getting your career on the right path? Meet others in a small, interactive setting and hear about how to get your foot in the door!

Talent development covers so many areas - from e-learning and instructional design to coaching, in-person training, management and consulting. Which one is right for you? Join us in discussing the different career paths and opportunities that the Bay Area holds for new professionals.

The mission of this group is to provide a quarterly opportunity to learn more about different roles in the field of talent development.

These small, interactive meetings give the opportunity for participants to closely network and ask questions of experts in the field. This meeting is not another panel discussion or large Q/A session. Often time limits you to one question in such formats (if you even can get a question in), and competing for a conversation afterwards can be a challenge. By keeping meetings small, we wish to eliminate such issues.

The first meeting will address the different avenues that training and talent development professionals often encounter in the job market. From e-learning and performance solution to training and evaluation, speaker Paul Anjeski will discuss what area you may be interested in knowing more about and next steps in getting started on your individual path to career success, while also meeting other  professionals new to the field!

General overview of agenda includes:

● Welcome - food & drink

● Paths that lead into different areas of the talent development field

● How to get get started in your area of preference

● Overview of Bay Area industries that hire (health care tech, ed, government, etc) and what they look for

● Resources/ideas on how to find job
