Career Development Committee Services Discount & Stipend Program

The San Francisco Bay Area Chapter is excited to tell you about a new program that we're rolling out this year.The Career Development Committee's mission is to provide resources to help our members develop skills, networks, and personal promotional materials to maximize their career opportunities.We hope to assist our in-transition members to find their next job and to assist our currently employed members to advance their careers.

As many of you know from attending Career Development Committee luncheon meetings, we try to "think outside the box" so that we can bring you great programs with maximum relevance and impact to your career.This new program continues that proud tradition.

The bottom line:What better way to serve our members than to offer you discounts on career-development services?We're launching a new professional development program designed to motivate you to seek out assistance from a selectfew service providers.Test out one of these services to fine-tune your resume, sharpen your interviewing skills, learn how to tackle that difficult and sometimes embarrassing challenge called "networking," develop your leadership skills, target your career campaign and direct mailings, or just benefit from some career coaching (such as counseling or personal skills assessments).

Act now!Discounts from our selected service providers are valid through December 31, 2008.You will be required to show your ACC membership card to take advantage of the discounted rates.

If you have any questions, please contact either of the co-chairs of the Career Development Committee:

We hope you get great value out of this program!
