You never know what will be of interest to whom.  Getting information about you and who you are is integral to finding a successful career path. ALTI wants to help!

GET DISCOVERED!

Have you ever heard the saying; “The squeaky wheel gets the grease”? Getting noticed and staying noticed is a vital tool in promoting and building a career. How does ALTI help? Articles, Papers, Forum posts, projects and accomplishments, and getting active in ALTI. If any or all of this seems intimidating or time consuming; PLEASE! Do not feel overwhelmed. ALTI and our Mentors have your back!

  1. Papers. These may be projects, assignments, or personal interest. Don’t worry about length, or formality, or structure. Submit what you have and we will be sure that it works for you!
  2. Articles. More lengthy and in depth than Papers and also more personal. This would probably not be your first publication, but the same guidance applies. Send it. We’ll review it, and we will help you to look good!
  3. Forum Posts. This is the easiest and most laid back way to engage. These may be about just about anything. Favorite projects, Recent experiences. Challenges. Requests for advice, or give advice. Anything that moves you. Still serves to raise your visibility!
  4. ANY ideas that you may have to engage are ALWAYS welcome! Let us know your thoughts!
  5. ALTI-EXPO. The #1 vehicle for career building, networking, and establishing your future. Not an exaggeration. See the section below for details.

Reach out with ideas, submissions and questions at any time! Call Barry Vogel at 602-388-8669 or email at barryv@altiassoc.org
