ACC National Capital Region Hosts Career Development Fair

O 65 members had opportunities to gain insight into ways they can hone their professional profiles — for networking or job-search purposes.

Attendees met with career counseling and placement professionals in one-on-one sessions lasting 25-minutes to discuss topics such as interviewing, perfecting résumés, improving LinkedIn profiles, leveraging networks, networking, and developing a career plan.

In addition, attendees could attend breakout sessions regarding relevant and compelling career enhancement topics in a group setting. These sessions were held throughout the day and were informal and interactive.

Participating as guides in the program were career counseling and placement professionals from seven companies: Assigned Counsel; Attorney Talent Strategy Group, LLP; Garrison & Sisson Inc.; Major, Lindsey & Africa; The McCormick Group; Robert Half Legal; and Wegman Partners.

As a further service to the attendees, ACC NCR also engaged a professional photographer to take head shots of those who wanted them for their use on updated LinkedIn profiles or company websites.

Attendees were very enthusiastic about the guidance they received on refreshing how they present themselves in the professional environment.
