A Portfolio Career – is that something for me?
Career Development and Lifelong Learning Series

More freedom, more fulfilling work and more robust income: can you really have it all?

Yes! If you ask Avalyn Lim TIEMBA14'J and Abel van Staveren EMBA'08D, two experienced portfolio careerists and INSEAD alumni.

Portfolio careers can be an attractive alternative to single-path careers, if you are seeking flexibility and choice in your work, or have always wondered what it would be like to do something else, while holding on to your day job.

Join them for an informative and interactive evening on the what, why and how of portfolio careers and how to get started.
