The summit covers a number of topics that will help you make changes you may be seeking in your professional or personal life. “At the start of the New Year, we often look for ways of recalibrating the path we are on,” says CEPS Dean Karen Passaro. “This seminar provides the space to build skills, gain insights and encounter fresh ideas that will get us to the goals we set for ourselves.”

The day opens with a panel discussion on career change and transitions at 9:00 a.m. The discussion will be followed by breakout sessions, beginning with a workshop entitled: “The Confident Public Speaker,” with communications coaches Maureen Corbeski and Mallory Jones.

Next, work-life expert Emily Seamone shares the six main aspects that contribute to work-life balance and provides actionable steps to get there.

Management coach Lisa Allen, then asks: “Are you putting your dreams on hold?”

Later, career counselor and therapist Alena Grunberg explores the concept of a “stress-less” job search.

In the next workshop, Lucy Pesce will focus on building authentic leadership within higher education.

Whether you’re a recent graduate, workforce returnee, or in the middle of a job change, Seton Hall’s Career Summit will give you an opportunity to connect with others and walk away with the necessary strategies and techniques you need to gain greater confidence, clarity, and renewed energy in the pursuit of your life’s mission.
