Career Portal Lounge

Come join us to take your career to the next level! Stop by the ASHA Career Portal Lounge in the Career Fair, and attend a mini-workshop led by Orlando-based career coach Nancy Lysandrou.

Gain tips to help

  • design a career path that’s right for you;
  • network;
  • build confidence; and
  • work smarter and live better.

Each mini-workshop lasts 20 minutes and is ​more of a conversation than a lecture, in a friendly environment where you’ll be able to meet other colleagues facing similar challenges in their lives. We also have 100 time slots available for a one-on-one resume review.

All workshops take place in the Career Portal Lounge in Exhibit Hall B4-D1, Booth CF2272​, at the Orange County Convention Center.
