Webinar: Your First 100 Days

Webinar: Your First 100 Days

Wednesday, March 8, 2017 -

7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Take advantage of this free webinar offered to you by the University of Northern Iowa Alumni Association.

Jeffrey Tarter will focus on career management.

The first hundred days of a brand-new job will play a huge role in shaping the success of your whole career. Your on-the-job competence will always be important, of course, but you’ll also have to manage complex work relationships, your personal branding, and the tangible results you deliver. If you fail in these areas, you may be able to recover later—but it’s going to be hard.
 
Jeffrey Tarter, author of The First Hundred Days, has written the definitive career guide for how to hit the ground running on a new job. In this webinar, he describes five critical “moments of truth” during your first hundred days that you should be well prepared to encounter :
 
    • Your first one-on-one conversation with your boss
    • Your first (probably trivial) assignment
    • The moment when your team members really begin to trust you
    • The first time you’re shocked by the bad behavior of your co-workers
    • The moment when you decide you really love—or hate—your new job
Jeff will share expert advice and personal narratives drawn from The First Hundred Days to help you deal with these critical five moments… and to start demonstrating your full potential as a star performer right from Day One.

Cash Nickerson will focus on career management.

We are living longer, much longer, than our ancestors. We are no longer young and old; there is a new third age, a potentially productive age of 65-80. As our country’s nearly 80 million 
 
Baby Boomers reach this unprecedented phase of life, many want to continue in the workforce and we need them. Our attitudes, laws and workplaces need to change for us and them to adapt successfully to the age of longevity. 
 
Working and retirement should not and cannot be an “on and off switch.” Cash will help you become more aware of this information so you can use it to influence your community, employer and government organizations.

Reinventing a great American tradition through an absurdist, discerning eye, Scapellato uses these stories to conjure worlds, themes and characters who are at once unquestionably familiar and undeniably strange. "Big Lonesome" navigates through the American West—from the Old West to the modern-day West to the Midwest, from cowboys to mythical creatures to everything in between—exploring place, myth, masculinity and what it means to be whole or to be broken.

"How the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami Went from Being a Tidal Wave to a Tsunami: Implications for Science Literacy" by Scott Clark, geology, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire. Clark will discuss how preliminary reports of the 2004 tsunami referred to it as a tidal wave, but within four days, 80% of news reports used the word "tsunami." Since that time, more than 97% of news stories have avoided the term "tidal wave" when describing subsequent events. Clark will explore the reasons that led the media to move away from the use of the term tidal wave and will comment on the potential implications of these findings for communication efforts on other earth science topics such as climate change.
