Seminar on "Managing Your Career in a Crisis Economy"


Secretary of Labor and Workforce Development Suzanne M. Bump is the keynote speaker for the second session of the "Managing Your Career in a Crisis Economy" seminar series presented by Suffolk University's Advancement Office.

Session Two will once again gather Suffolk University faculty, alumni, and experts in career management and the labor market to share their expertise. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, March 21, 2009, in Suffolk University Law School Room 265, 120 Tremont St., Boston.

Bump, who co-chaired the Committee on Commerce and Labor during her tenure as a state representative, is a graduate of Suffolk University Law School. As one of the five members of Governor Deval Patrick’s “development cabinet,” she works across agency and department lines to spur economic and job growth.

Bump will discuss:

  • What Massachusetts will look like when the current employment crisis is over
  • Where growth opportunities are expected
  • How workers can prepare now for future opportunities

Additional speakers include:

  • Suffolk University Professor Michael Arthur, a nationally known expert in contemporary “intelligent” careers, project-based enterprises, knowledge management and strategic management.
  • Laurence J. Stybel of Stybel Peabody Lincolnshire, an Arbora Global Company, who is Executive in Residence at Suffolk University, who will discuss "Having a strategic approach to managing your association memberships."
  • Alumnus Ken Mattsson, a career & professional development consultant for Resonare Consulting and assistant director of alumni and graduate student career services for Emerson College, who will discuss "How are you telling your story and, are you telling well?"
