Preparing ourselves to be fully engaged for the upcoming EACE 2014 conference – Get prepared to take the shots.

EACE Blog contribution by Val Matta, VP Business Development at CareerShift, LLC and 2014 EACE Conference Committee

hockey-playerWe all know and have realized that you get what you give. What you put into things is what you get out of them. As the chase for the Stanley Cup continues, think about this popular quote:

 “You will miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” – -Wayne Gretzy

 Our shots come in all sizes and colors, but one thing is constant about our shots…. It requires ACTION!  The upcoming conference is jammed packed with strong winds to learn, engage and take action.

 The possible outcomes for you are many: 

  • Learn a different approach to counseling.
  • Make a connection with an employer.
  • Be prepared for the trends and future of Career Services.
  • Pick an aspect of diversity and explore it.
  • Figure out how to collaborate on your campus.
  • Learn a new way to engage your clients, customers and employers.
  • Figure out how reach out to faculty.
  • Take advantage of the speed learning opportunities- learn many things at once.
  • Get up to date on the federal job landscape.
  • Learn from your professional exhibitors – we are all in this together!
  • Be better at achieving balance.
  • Benefit from some sales skills.
  • Learn from an attorney about Work Visas.

As EACE 2014 conference approaches- let’s keep this in mind- Take the shots. Be avid.  Laugh. Embrace Change.  Choose. Seek out a new friend. Say yes to something new. Volunteer. Help. Ask for what you want. Find your balance and STAND ON IT. Most importantly, remember that fun is healthy.

We look forward to sharing some time with you.

Your Program co-chairs,

Walter Tarver and Val Matta
