Which means, job search is now a skill every professional needs to survive. Even more important is the difference between a job and a career. Fekete is a 40-year veteran of the chemical and pharmaceuticals industries with high level positions in engineering, research, operations and strategic planning management will talk about careers, job searches and networking.

July 22 – Financial Literacy
