Fostering Resilience to Drive Your Career Forward

Chris Villanueva, Let's Eat Grandma


The job search can be one of the most stressful transitions we have to go through. During this time, many are peppered with confusing messages, auto-rejections, and the uncertainty that comes with not knowing what's next. At worst, we feel like our identity is under attack.

Despite the battle we enter during the job search, we are afforded an incredible opportunity to level up and grow as humans. In this session, we'll cover the struggles of the job search and effective ways to deal with them while fostering resilience. We will wrap the session up by covering LinkedIn, and we'll discuss how to use this tool to foster a sense of momentum in your career.

His philanthropic mission is to help the underprivileged in society, so that the homeless, underserved, and formerly incarcerated can reintegrate back into the workforce.

It all starts with the resume.
