My latest Memphis Daily News column is out, “Standing Out in The Crowd.” In it, I discuss how you can stand out from your peers in your job search and professionally.
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of participating in a panel as part of the Memphis Urban League Young Professional’s 2014 Empowerment Conference. We spoke on the topic of “Stand Out in the Crowd.”
This was my first time to attend the Empowerment Conference and I was impressed at the level of organization and detail put in by a volunteer staff. Many attendees used the hashtag #Unite2Lead when posting online, and that seemed to be just what the conference was all about. Led by MULYP President Cynthia Daniels, it brought together over 200 young professionals in the Memphis area, along with out of town guests coming as far as Washington, D.C., New York, and Los Angeles.
My panel – moderated by Austin Baker and also featuring Cedric Brooks, Latosha Dexter, and Adrian Davis – touched on everything from how to dress for an interview to how to deal with office politics to knowing when to move on from a bad job.
To learn about the main theme from our panel and how you can stand out in the crowd, read my entire Memphis Daily News column here.
