With more than 30 years of experience in human resources, corporate affairs and operations, Wuthmann will explain how to stand out to employers among a sea of other candidates, to get hired and promoted. Currently, he is a senior associate consultant providing executive coaching support to corporate leaders. Wuthmann also serves on the advisory council for the full-time post-degree and the part-time, online Certificates in Human Resources Management.

“In today’s highly competitive environment, companies require employees who can add value and contribute very quickly and effectively,” said Wuthmann. “Business now moves too fast to allow long ramp up times for new team members.”

Guests attending the event will receive a 15 per cent discount to apply to their registration in a School of Continuing Studies program.

Staff from the School of Continuing Studies will also be on hand to help answer any questions on the programs and the school in general.
