We want to help you in the midst of career transition. In these days of amplified job insecurity, many of us are either seeking new employment or know someone who is. The search process can be intense and requires confidence, energy, and connections. So to fuel the process, we host a gathering called 3Ds (Discover, Develop, Deploy). Join us at our special program to gain fresh perspective and enjoy the company of likeminded people, people in career transition that are committed to succeed in business and in life. Regardless of the type of employment you’re seeking, we’re confident you will find this environment encouraging and helpful. We have some of our members who take pleasure employing our own members and this might just be the breakthrough you need.
