The ASHA Circle of Support

Learn Tips and Strategies for a Better Work/Life Balance

Come join us for cookies and a not-so-cookie cutter approach to improving your work/life balance. Stop by the ASHA Circle of Support in the Career Fair and take a mini-workshop led by Los Angeles-based career coach Sandie Bass. She'll provide advice and tips on how to

  • design a career path that’s right for you
  • approach a difficult conversation
  • answer those common but tough interview questions
  • find calm in the midst of chaos.

We've set these up as more of a conversation than a lecture, in an intimate, friendly environment where you’ll be able to meet other colleagues facing similar challenges in their lives. We also have 100 slots available for a one-on-one résumé review.   

All workshops take place in the Los Angeles Convention Center, ASHA Circle of Support Lounge, South Hall H-K, Booth 1862.
