Many thanks to the more than 140 Notre Dame staff who attended Career Development Day on November 12, hosted by the Office of Human Resources at the Notre Dame Conference Center. The event was designed to help employees learn ways to develop their Notre Dame career and promote networking with other members of the University community.
The morning event kicked off with a continental breakfast and keynote address by Lee Svete, associate vice-president for career and professional development. Employees selected from three concurrent breakout sessions on such topics as personal branding and networking, interviewing tips and tactics, and career management.
The morning continued with a professional development fair featuring information tables on educational benefits for Notre Dame faculty & staff, professional development opportunities, and a career consultation center. Representatives of three local colleges were also available – Trine University, Indiana University South Bend, and IVY Tech Community College.
