Transitioning from Technologist to Leader

Leveraging Your Past, Marketing Yourself for the Future


By Sue Baumgarten

This interactive discussion will focus on your issues in making the transition and seeking a new career.  Sue Baumgarten made the transition from radar system engineer to president of Raytheon International, and will share her thoughts and experiences on how to do it.  The focus will be on your questions, but possible areas to consider are:

Do you want to launch into something completely new, or leverage your past technical experience/education?
How do you "sell" yourself as a potential leader?
What career steps are the most logical for those with technology backgrounds?

This discussion will be tailored to the attendees, so please come with your questions/concerns/goals for the future.
