Are There Benefits to Being Told ‘No’?

We have all heard the word no in our careers —from not getting a job or promotion we thought we were qualified for to not being permitted to work on a special project that we feel could be beneficial for our employers.  As discouraging as it can be, hearing No can be turned into a positive opportunity.  Attend a session entitled, ‘The Power of No’ Sunday, February 1, 2:00 – 3:00 pm in the ALA JobLIST Placement Center (McCormick Place -West, Level 3, Hall F2) to discuss how to deal with being told no in your career and use it to your advantage.  Dan Hoppe, the Director of Human Resources at the American Library Association will share his years of experience in human resources to help attendees understand how to turn the word No into stepping stones to move your career forward.
