Job search advice sometimes comes at you from all sides. Some advisors say to follow what makes you happy to find a great job—do what you love and the money will follow. Others counsel a pragmatic, business-oriented approach to landing a job or growing a business. Ever wish you could blend the two? Or feel that both approaches have merit? Wonder what it would be like to have work you loved and were praised for doing? Then be sure to come hear Eric Asbeck give a talk entitled “Get Clear About What You Love and Do Well” at PSGCNJ’s general meeting on August 25.
His talk will explain how to clearly identify what you love to do and what you can deliver with confidence and credibility. His talk will cover: 1) the source of the powerful motivation to enthusiastically do what it takes to be successful; 2) how to find the inspiration that will have you jumping into action; and 3) how to communicate clearly about what you want to do next.
Eric’s past roles fired his passion in leading teams to create new businesses, services, and offers that won over $100 million in new business. Those roles include systems engineering for new products at Bell Labs, product management at AT&T in a new hyper-growth data service startup, program director of NCR’s quarter-billion dollar global Cisco program, business development at Cisco Systems working with their biggest strategic global partners, and most recently starting his own business helping entrepreneurs build businesses they love. For the past 10 years, Eric has been coaching individuals and groups with outstanding results.
He holds a BS in Industrial Engineering and Operations Research, an MS in Systems Engineering, and an MBA in New Venture Development.
So, bring a friend and come to hear him speak at PSGCNJ’s general meeting on Monday, August 25, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the First United Methodist Church, located at 48 West High Street, Somerville. Be sure to bring business cards, and be prepared to network.
