Employee Forum Mini-Conference: Careers in Higher Education Return to listing


Join the Employee Forum for the third annual Mini-Conference on Careers in Higher Education! This half-day conference includes 2 panels and a networking lunch (provided).

Panel I: "Moving Across UNC": Panelists will share their experiences working in and transistioning between different parts of the University. They will answer questions like, Why and how did they choose to leave one job for another within the University? How did they figure out what skills to develop in order to make that move? Or, how did they translate their existing skills into a new setting? How did they prepare to be somewhere "new" that's also the same old? What was the hardest part?

Panel II: "Everyday Leadership": Panelists discuss how they practice leadership skills in their daily jobs, even when those jobs don't officially include supervision. What counts as "leadership"? When and how can non-supervisors lead or develop those skills? What kinds of actions or attitudes count as leadership? What is their leadership philosophy? Panelists will also share what they learned through the University's ULEAD program. 

Networking lunch: Meet colleagues from across UNC, learning about what they do as you practice your networking skills.

Participants may attend part or all of the conference but must attend at least one panel to attend lunch.

Organized by the Employee Forum's Education and Career Development Committee.
