2013 NOW Conference Summary Report Here


The past few years have brought about many changes in the organizational structures, jobs and career opportunities for staff. We recognize that through these changes, some of you may be reconsidering your current job situation and/or exploring new career paths.  The goal of this conference was to equip you with some tools to guide you through this transitional time. The all-day NOW Conference included inspiring keynote speakers, and concurrent workshops to expose staff to career planning, job seeking and career resilience resources and tools to support their job futures on campus.  Managers and supervisors were encouraged to approve requests from staff to attend at least 2 hours of the NOW Conference.  Approval was subject to the operational needs of the unit.

This conference was free and exclusive to UC Berkeley staff.

We hope that this will be an annual spring event on campus.
