Take Part in our Mentor Match Program Sponsored by Walmart

All career expo attendees are invited to benefit from a complimentary, one-on-one “speed mentoring” session with accomplished professionals from a range of leading employers. This is your chance to ask questions about balancing work and family, figuring out how to switch careers, and finding the Aha! moment in your job search and career advancement. Ask anything you want during your mini-mentor session! It’s another FREE benefit of attending the Washington DC Career Expo. (No pre-registration necessary.)

Benefit from our Perfect Pitch Program

In this session you’ll work with coaches to master that all-important one sentence to sell yourself.

Whether you’re a seasoned executive, a recent college grad or an entrepreneur, we all must know how to introduce ourselves in a way that’s clear, concise and compelling. Yet most people don’t have that opening sentence down.

This session will help change that and leave you feeling empowered and confident. Get the boost you need!
