Practicing for career success topic of upcoming program at Franklin Park church

Tony LaRussa

A Franklin Park church is offering a free career development program to teach some the fundamental behaviors practiced by successful people who have enjoyed longevity in their careers.

“Practice Makes Perfect: Achieving Career Success” will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Sept. 18 at Saints John and Paul Church.

“We all know someone who has had a highly successful career,” said Carolyn Mariano, who coordinates the church’s Career Connections program. “And while it can be easy to be envious of their ‘luck’ or how they always seem to get all the promotions and raises, the truth is that long-term career success is hard work.”

The program will be presented by Jeff Hoover, a recently-retired partner with PricewaterhouseCoopers who spent more than 30 years serving global clients. Hoover will discuss how he uses a vast professional network of contacts to link people to job opportunities.

Hoover will be joined by Allan Roberts, a veteran and entrepreneur who works as an executive for Allegheny General Hospital.

The program will cover topics including working collaboratively, building skills, forming lasting professional relationships, expanding and maintaining connections, learning how to network inside and outside a company and understanding the life cycle of an industry.

No registration is needed to attend.

The church is located at 2586 Wexford Bayne Road.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
