You hack your closets, your workouts, and your meal prep. Now it’s time to dig deep and hack your career.

The new year is the perfect time to plan a career boost, and Frisco Library has curated an impressive panel of experts to get you there.

Hack Your Career Day, at Frisco Public Library on Saturday, January 25, will supercharge your career, foster your entrepreneurial spirit, and give you a chance to update your headshot.

Emcee Suad Bejtović, Frisco Enterprise’s 2016 Reader’s Choice for Best Photographer, will keep attendees informed throughout the day. He shared with us,

Hack Your Career Day is one of the events that, to me, represent what public libraries should be all about – community, education, and giving back. Once again, the team at Frisco Library assembled a great group of speakers and I’m sure the audience will come away with some great thoughts and ideas. My favorite thing about the event is that it’s interactive; so if you’re planning on attending, don’t be shy – I’m looking forward to great Q&A sessions with each speaker.

There are two career-upping sessions that run from 11 am to 4 pm:
