NACA Mentoring Program successfully held its third Group Session for Class of 2014 on September 15, 2014 at the Atlanta Galleria.
Joining the panel were Fabian De Rozario from Korn/Ferry International, Dave O’Fa rrell from O’Farrell Career Management, and Henry Yu from Fifth Third Bank. The session was moderated by David Halm from Project Success Inc. Total of 21 people attended the Group session, of which 13 are mentees and young professionals
The panel discussion focused on career management and covered topics including personal and leadership development, use of social medial, and exploring new opportunities within or beyond current firms. Mr. De Rozario introduced his own career development, and encouraged the mentees and young professionals to focus on three aspects of PIE: performance, image and exposure. As an experienced career management consultant, Mr. O’Farrell summarized that excellent career management requires one to keep skills sharp, to keep network active, and to keep up with accomplishments. Mr. Yu also discussed some major decisions made for his own career development, and challenged the class to become a top performer and take some risks to assume more responsibilities beyond his/her assignment.
The Group Session also provided the opportunity for our mentees to interact and network with panel speakers and NACA mentors.

The next session will be held on Saturday, November 8th, 2014 at Delta Airlines, and more details are coming soon. NACA welcome young Chinese and Asian professionals to join.
