In the later stages of a career, many professionals are trained on an individual basis. They may be in cohorts that share the same job title and have similar responsibilities, but they will still receive training that is tailored to their individual needs.

This is not the case with new professionals. New professionals are given a lot of material to digest, they need to make critical decisions and examine multiple options, and they must make the correct decision quickly and confidently.

Address challenges head-on

In today’s world, new challenges are constantly emerging. Agencies need to keep up with these challenges and address them in order to stay competitive. The Career Gateway: Acquisition program is designed to help you make that happen by providing you with the tools and knowledge needed to address the challenges head-on. With Career Gateway: Acquisition Cohort, you can address challenges head-on, elevate efficiencies, and move swiftly to address changes.

Learn to collaborate across agencies

Career Gateway: Acquisition will help you learn to collaborate across agencies. Learn how to work with people from different backgrounds and skill sets, and how to share knowledge across departments. This is especially useful in the business world, where silos and islands are less effective than working together as a team.

Choose the best solutions
