  • How to get started in contracting

“Many people have been considering contract work as they’ve found themselves out of their full-time positions due to Covid,” explained Hurst. “I’ll be sharing some tips and stories about how contract work in Learning & Development might be a great way to shift your mindset from a traditional full-time job to one with flexibility and varied projects.”

The program is sponsored by the L&D Professionals of Greater Philadelphia and their Job Hunters Group in partnership with TrainingPros. It is hosted by adult learning expert Suzanne Comer, a certified Associate Professional in Talent Development (APTD).
