The resulting economic crunch due to COVID-19 left many individuals out of work. Surprisingly, many workers (who are currently employed) ARE looking to switch or transition into a new role! When there's many applicants for one role - how do you make yourself stand out?
Let's start with the basics - your resume! Debi Easterday, CEO of H2B Consulting, will walk us through restructuring your resume so that you can stand out from the crowd. We will review a few resumes and go through a live critique - if you'd like yours to be critiqued, send it to me (megan.soriano@isacany.org) and we will anonymize it.
The first session is all about landing that job...but what does it take to keep it/add value to your company/get that promotion? Gideon Rasmussen, who is a vCISO of Virtual CSO LLC, will give us a presentation on getting that seat at the table by giving us tips on communicating effectively, speaking in terms of risk, and making yourself known in your company!
This is an Emerging Professionals Event, so if you are a:
  • Senior who's about to graduate
  • Recent grad (0 to 2 years in the workforce)
  • Junior or Senior Staff or Analyst
  • A Manager with less than 7 years of experience
then this is an event catered to you!
Lastly - we are offering this to you, our chapter members, at no-cost (make sure you register for the event, with the email that you have registered with ISACA). Student members in the ISACA New York Metropolitan Student Groups - please reach out to your club officers for the discount code. Non-chapter members must pay $20 to attend.

The Emerging Professionals (EP) Committee focus on members new to the profession and younger members (40 and under) representing the future of the profession. We provide guidance and networking opportunities as emerging professionals navigate through the early stages of their career.
