METRO has a great line-up of panelists that will explore and discuss major career options available to I/O and OD professionals, students, and those looking to make career transitions. Join us to hear early career and senior practitioners discuss the knowledge, skills, abilities, and characteristics that employers are seeking, and how to gain the upper hand in your job search.

The program will include panels from internal practitioners and academics, external practitioners, and young professionals. You will also have the opportunity to talk with experts and colleagues directly about issues in your career development. This year our exciting group of panelists will include applied psychologists (MA's and Ph.D.'s) from a variety of industries and work environments.

The program will conclude with a general networking session where you'll have an additional opportunity to talk with experienced I/O and OD professionals.

Some of the issues and questions the panels will address are:

  • A close-up explanation of the differences between the internal and external consultant role.

  • What shifts in perspective do we need to make given the current work environment?

  • What technical and non-technical resources are available for help in the job search?
