VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. - Sept. 4, 2014 - PRLog -- Virginia Beach, VA — September 4, 2014 — Francina R. Harrison, MSW, known nationally as “The Career Engineer (http://TCEnow.com)®” (TCE), will host a TCE Career, Life & Business Summit and Awards Luncheon at the Sheraton Virginia Beach on Saturday, October 11, 2014 (includes a Friday Evening VIP Reception).  The TCE Summit will equip career professionals, jobseekers and small business owners with the 21st-Century competitive advantage.

According to the Department of Labor, the private sector added 2.1 million jobs to the economy since Labor Day 2013. However, approximately 9.7 million Americans are still unemployed. Countless others are under-employed and a significant number are what is termed “unhappily employed.”  Meanwhile, business owners, SWaMs and non-profits are struggling to make payroll, source the “right talent,” secure gov’t contracts and access capital to grow their organizations.

Today’s workforce is faced with finding and keeping the “American Dream” in the midst of a recovering nightmare.  How can you “fight back” and win, in spite of the realities of today’s economy?

This impactful TCE Summit provides those answers.

For career professionals, the TCE Summit will cover topics such as effective networking, career/workforce intelligence and share hidden career leads.  There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions, network and build relationships with CEO’s and human resources professionals.  For small-business owners, summit topics will include CEO insights, best practices, lessons learned, procurement intelligence, technology, social media, 21st century marketing/branding, fiscal accountability and deal making connections.  “It’s all about creating REALationshipsSM that have the capacity to produce increased revenue as well as social capital,” says Harrison. “I decided to host this event in Coastal Virginia to introduce business owners and career professionals from all over the country to what this area has to offer.”
