Join us for an engaging and insightful professional growth workshop where we will focus on two essential topics crucial for career success and job resiliency – Personal Branding & the Recruitment Journey. This unique event will feature two simultaneous sessions, allowing attendees to participate in discussions on both subjects.

Session 1: Uncover Your Personal Brand
Your personal brand is what sets you apart from others and leaves a lasting impression on colleagues, employers, and potential clients. In this session, you will delve into introspective exercises and interactive discussions to uncover your unique strengths, values, and passions. Learn how to communicate your brand effectively and authentically, ensuring you make a memorable impact in your professional career.

Session 2: Decoding the Recruitment Journey: From Resume Review to Integration
In this engaging panel discussion, we will bring together a panel from Intuit’s Talent Acquisition, Recruiting, and Hiring Teams to explore the multifaceted aspects and dialogues that encompass the entire recruiting process. The diverse expertise represented on the panel will provide valuable insights into the perspectives involved in various stages – from the initial resume review and screening to the pivotal role post-hiring.

Don’t miss this invaluable opportunity to level up your career journey. Join us at Intuit’s San Diego HQ for two interactive, collaborative sessions, where you’ll unlock your future potential and gain the confidence you need to help you thrive in your career!
