Professional Confidence

Do you worry that you are less prepared than your peers for your chosen job markets?  Or do you have too much confidence, alienating your peers and leaving you unprepared? Being able to take a realistic stock of your skills and achievements, removing negative mindsets that prevent you from moving forward productively, and taking action to improve the way you present yourself to the world are all important steps to career success.

  • Beat impostor syndrome
  • Develop a supportive network of mentors and peers
  • Recognize and build your professional skills
  • Learn how to communicate your value effectively
