BSG Career Coaching Program Launched

On August 17, 2019, we successfully relaunched our professional career development program and renamed it to “BSG Career Coaching Program“.

The original professional career development program was started two years ago in 2017, and it was initially designed as a one-day professional career development training camp.

The most valuable activities and training content remain as part of core services for the new program. The relaunched program will now be focusing more on a long-term value for trainees and career coaching is beyond just one day to support all of our students in different phase of career development. The program will also be leveraging our professional experience from our consulting business at Boston Software Group Inc. and leaders from BSG partners and community.

On August 17, 2019, we successfully completed the first professional career development training camp in our Metrowest office in Natick, MA.

Kudos to our instructors, guests, and students!


。。。
来BSG最大的体会是,我意识到在现在这个高速发展的信息化时代中,我们之前所说的“伯乐”与“贵人”不再以或是很少以个人的机遇及命运安排的形式出现,而是像您所创立的这家公司。

它们通过平台的形式,让所有人都可以在“千里马”和“伯乐”两个角色之间随时交换并通过大家的交流与分享,让每一份子都不断强化自己的这两种身份,从而得到提高,这是我觉得BSG最大价值的地方,也希望BSG能越来越好。
