Career Transitions Forum

Summer break

Career Transitions Forum is taking a short break for the summer as we reorganize to better meet the needs of our community's job seekers and career changers. For the past two years, we have been meeting virtually, and although there is value and benefits for online networking, we know meeting face to face, connecting, sharing and interacting with a cup of coffee in your hand can be powerful. We are working at combining the best of both worlds.

We don't want to lose you in the interim, so please click the Register button below and then click "Notify me when offered." Enter your email, and you will be notified when we begin registering for CTF. Please take advantage of the fee-waived classes that are available to you through Wake Tech's Career Services.

If you have questions, please email [email protected] or call at 919-532-5940.

Career Transitions Forum (CTF) is a unique series of lectures, presentations and networking activities designed to support professionals transitioning in their careers.

Professionals from recruitment firms, corporations and the local community present a broad array of job search strategies and tips, with a different topic presented each week. New participants can join any week.

Career advising is available for free from our prestigious team of business executives for those who have attended at least one CTF session and preferably who have completed a Career Services resume class.

To schedule an appointment, submit the CTF Career Advising Request form, which is available at CTF meetings on Thursdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (Advising appointments will be meeting virtually using Zoom, Teams, or any platform that the Advisor chooses.
