I try to be really selective when it comes to trainings and conferences, as it is not easy to find an impactful one in a niche area like career development. I am so happy to be part of CPDI in Nov 20019. I really suggest all related colleagues to follow and participate in future events. — Tuna Dağlı, Career Development Center Director, Koç University
