October Speaker Event 10/11/2017 **Slides Attached**

The Non-Traditional Job Search

David Hughen

Cofounder and Managing Partner, Austin HR

**Slide Presentation Link**

Topic:

Working professionals (and those in transition) interested to be resilient in a rapidly changing work environment.

This talk would be on the emerging “new work” conditions due to companies re-thinking how they align people to work. The talk is called “The Non-Traditional Search”, in which the speaker will review the changing environment in which business is adjusting to shorter product cycles and the overall speed of change. David’s messages are focused on pressing attendees to define themselves as a business entity and to adopt behaviors that ensure they can be resilient in the changing work environment.
