January 2014 CCPE Information Session

Description: Did you know that a recent study conducted by Empowered Careers, a division of UCLA, and Impulse Research Corp shows that hiring managers are increasingly comfortable with applicants seeking to change or enhance their careers through completion of certificate programs? According to the study, 82% of human resources managers and recruiters said obtaining a certificate is one of the best ways for professionals to keep current or upgrade their job market skills, and 89% said obtaining a certificate is a helpful step in changing careers. Additionally, 75% of HR managers stated that if a job candidate cannot find work in a related field, they would consider a certificate program a good alternative for gaining related work experience.

Join us at our new downtown campus and take the opportunity to learn how a professional certificate from Georgetown University can benefit your career. Program advisors will be available to answer questions.

The Center for Continuing & Professional Education (CCPE) offers professional certificate programs in management, finance, marketing, and leadership for business and government managers, career changers, and entrepreneurs.

Registration for the information session begins at 6:00PM and a formal presentation starts at 6:30PM.
