Monday 18th Jan – Webinar: Get to know your Transferable Skills
January 18 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Identify your key assets, realise your true value. Discover hidden talents & create your key skills profile as the basis for your job search. The session focuses on the importance of your skills to a prospective employer and presents a powerful way of finding and prioritising them.
This interactive session involves small breakout groups of three. It allows you to identify and share your skills through story telling around your business experiences and achievements. The breakout group members will identify the skills that have surfaced via your story telling, expanding on these by asking questions.
Whilst the thought of sharing your achievements in a breakout room might cause anxiety, it’s a really positive experience. You will leave the session with a greater focus around what you can do and accomplish successfully.
If you have time before the session, practise your story to ensure it has sufficient detail to bring out the key information. If it’s too long however, the impact on the listener may reduce as well as their attention!
