The Dos and Don’ts of Career Pivoting

March 24 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am


Please RSVP for this event on the registration button at the bottom for the Zoom link.

Please join Ed Samuel, Career Coach with SamNova ( as he discusses the Dos and Don’ts for those wanting to make a career pivot to optimize their career. Career pivots can take hundreds of forms, but their overall aim is to bring you to a better place. For example, leaving an industry that you have known all your life to work in a new industry. Shifting your career to a new line of work such as operations to marketing or finance to sales or nursing to customer service are all examples of pivots. Leaving corporate America to blaze your own trail is yet another pivot. These pivots are all about leveraging your skills, experience, and your heart to create an even more fulfilling career and life.
