This month the ATD Research Triangle Area chapter and NC State University Master of Education in Training and Development program offers a Learning and Development Career Development panel of professionals who will share how and why they were attracted to learning and development as facilitators, instructional designers, and managers. Whether you are a student, new career professional, or seasoned professional, you don’t want to miss this program! Come learn how to join the learning and development career or enhance your career! This event consists of a panel of five learning and development professionals sharing their insights on how to start a career in Learning and Development (L&D) or enhance your career in L&D. This event will be open to members of the Association of Talent Development (ATD) Research Triangle Area chapter, NC State University students and their guests.

Joe Martin

My name is Joe Martin.  Before entering into the L&D field, I taught in the public school systems for 10 years.  I primarily taught high school special education but also spent time teaching social studies.  The decision to shift careers from public education to Learning and Development stemmed from my desire to grow as a professional educator and increase my income.  I returned to school to complete my Master's at NCSU in the Training and Development grad program.  I now work full time as an Instructional Designer for a company called SCS Global Services.  I am eager to share my initial experiences with anyone who is curious, especially other public educators who are interested in entering into the field.
