What Does Your Personal & Professional Image Project?

For many of us, this is the time of year to clean-out the "cob-webs" within our homes and offices as we move forward into spring. It is also a great time to take stock of how we project ourselves both personally and professionally. Want to learn how to Rethink, Reimagine and Reenergize Your Brand?

This week, Career...Encore, the support and networking group for jobseekers, will spotlight this very subject in a fun, relaxing and engaging manner. We will cover the perceived definition of one's personal and professional image versus the one they are actually projecting using the acryonm - IMAGE.
