Greetings!  I'm excited about two special events in which I will be participating in the next several weeks.  This issue of my newsletter will provide you with the details.  I invite you to join me!

In This Issue

Webcast: Successful Job Search Strategies
ASTD International Conference & Exposition
Webcast: Successful Job Search Strategies 
I'll be hosting a webcast called "Successful Job Search Strategies" on Tuesday, May 1 at 2:00 p.m..  The webcast is sponsored by ASTD and will last for about one  hour.  I've never done a webcast before, and I'm really looking forward to the experience.
I invite you to log-in for this FREE webcast.  The webcast is open to the public, and you don't have to be an ASTD member to attend.  You can log-in by following this link:  You will be able to log-in beginning at 1:30 p.m. on May 1.
ASTD recommends that you always run a diagnostic tool before logging in for a webcast.  You can run the diagnostic tool by going to:
Please plan to join me for the "Successful Job Search Strategies" webcast on May 1 at 2:00 p.m.
ASTD International Conference & Exposition - 2007! 
It's time again for the ASTD International Conference and Exposition (ICE).  The 2007 ICE will be held from June 3 through June 6, 2007 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.  I'm again participating in the ICE Career Center this year, and will be presenting two workshops in partnership with my colleague, Sharon Armstrong.
  • The first workshop is called "Behavioral Interviewing - A Key to Effectively Being Hired and Hiring," and will be presented at 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 3. 
  • The second workshop is called "Lights, Camera, Action: The Anatomy of an Interview," and will be presented at 9:30 a.m. on Monday, June 4. 

Please plan to come to one or both of the workshops if you are at ICE in Atlanta.

I have also served on the conference planning committee for this year's conference.  An exceptional program is planned, and I'm enthusiastically looking forward  to the conference.
I hope to see you in Atlanta!
As always, thanks to all my friends and colleagues for your continued support.  I couldn't do it without you!
