Presenter: Elizabeth Lions
During the past few weeks, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought the American economy to a virtual standstill. With the economy halted, a number of fields, including engineering, have experienced major job loss. IEEE-USA has invited Elizabeth Lions, author, human resources professional and executive career coach, to discuss what people can do right now if they’ve lost their job due to this worldwide pandemic. Ms. Lions will also discuss tips on what others can do to advance their career while practicing social distancing.
