  • METRO Virtual Career Day 2022

  • Join us on Friday, March 18, 2022 from 9am to 4:30pm for METRO's Virtual Career Day! We have a great line-up of panelists that will explore options available to I-O and OD professionals, students, and those looking to make career transitions. Hear early career and senior practitioners, as well as academicians discuss what employers are seeking, get more prepared for your job search, and learn more about their experiences. 

    Virtual Format: This year’s Career Day includes a mix of panels and many opportunities to interact and network with other attendees as well as the speakers. After each 55 minute panel, you’ll be placed into small groups with one or two of the speakers for an additional 30 minutes. You are welcome to come to only the sessions that are most relevant to you or join us for the whole day - whichever you’d prefer. Our goal is to encourage genuine interactions and stronger relationships within our community.

    Panelists will discuss:

    Differences and commonalities between internal and external roles

    Resources available for help in the job search

    Interviewing tips and what employers look for on your resume

    Avenues for career pathing  
    Current trends in the job market
