DON’T FORGET TO SHOWCASE YOUR WORK

You don’t have to attend them all but having a presence can be the springboard you need to get your work out there. “If you have something that resonates with people, and just stands out, it’ll get its attention,” he ads. “It’ll get its due, which of course will help you move forward with your next project.”

Moss, Ph.D., educational consultant, NASA researcher and author of Learn to Intern CEO Style (Antoine Moss; $15). "The primary reason is because students didn’t know how to separate themselves from the pack."

	Moss came up with the Creator of Excellent Opportunities (CEO) framework, detailed in his book, and offers these tips for students who want to find long-lasting success in achieving not only current career goals, but making impressions that will have a lasting, positive impact:

For too long women have been forced to figure out how to survive on their own. I wrote my book, SKIRTS in the Boardroom to equip women with the tools necessary to chart their own course. S.K.I.R.T.S. is actually an acronym that represents the characteristics that today’s woman must have to thrive in the boardroom, which ultimately represents any place of power that is male-dominated---a place where decisions are made and where you have a chance to show what you're made of. While it may change at different stages of your life, the boardroom is your playing field. It's also a place where the good ‘ole boys' network has, and continues to, flourish. It is time for the ladies to take their seats in the executive suite.   So how do you position yourself to thrive in and out of the boardroom?  Here seven savvy qualities that today’s S.K.I.R.T.S. must possess to go to the next level. (Pay attention, fellas---you can learn some fabulous tips, too!)---Marshawn Evans
