From Competition to Career: a CLC event on Feb. 15, 2011

How innovation competitions can benefit your career development - an event hosted by Climate Leadership Challenge

We're excited to invite you to our upcoming event From Competition to Career  on Tuesday, February 15 from 4:30-5:30 p.m. Join us at the Wisconsin Institutes for Discovery Town Center for a CLC-sponsored informational session featuring a panel of experts speaking on how innovation competitions look appealing to prospective employers and how they can even prepare you to start your own business or nonprofit organization. 

The panel will feature John Klatt, Director of Advising and Career Services for UW-Madison's College of Agriculture and Life SciencesAllen Dines, Assistant Director of New Ventures and Private Equity at the UW-Madison Office of Corporate Relations, and Chris Meyer, founder of the nonprofit community workspace Sector67. The panelists will speak on topics including how to turn your competition experience into more than a one-liner on your resume, why employers look favorably on competition experiences, and how the experience of participating in a student innovation competition can help prepare you for starting your own business or nonprofit.

Come for an hour of networking and information. Coffee and cookies provided. Please RSVP to so we can get an idea of how many will attend. Hope to see you there!
