    One of ISACA New York Metropolitan Chapter’s goals is to assist, educate, and guide our Chapter Members progression throughout their careers, from starting in an entry-level role, all the way to the C-Suite, via webinars, mentorship programs and other initiatives. The World is currently experiencing a historic economic downturn, and several of our young and emerging professionals are currently underemployed or unemployed. In this Emerging Professionals session, we will provide you with tools, tips, and tricks to elevate your resume; and - once you scored an opportunity – how to increase your chances at a promotion. 

    You don’t have to wait for "New Year, New Me” – get inspired and make changes during this event!
