When you have an overflowing inbox, back-to-back meetings and barely any time to eat lunch, spending time on professional development can seem like a low priority. But when we lose focus on advancing our careers and don’t dedicate time to professional development, we’re putting ourselves at a disadvantage in the long run to get promotions, higher salaries, and more responsibility.
Fortunately, the core of GovLoop’s mission has always been to help government employees do their jobs better, and that includes providing the information and resources you need to develop and grow your career.
You’re invited to join us on Wednesday, Feb. 27 from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. ET/7 a.m.-1:30 p.m. PT for our free NextGen Professional Development Virtual Summit: Advance Your Gov Career. If you’ve participated in any of our virtual summits before, you know the drill. The event is completely virtual, so you don’t need to travel or take time away from the office. You can also join the virtual summit as your schedule allows. Additionally, you can also earn CPE credit for the sessions you attend live.
