It’s rare that we take time to think about our accomplishments and our goals for our career. By creating a roadmap for your career, you’ll be able to more easily verbalize your strengths, skills, and interests in order to find more career satisfaction during all the twists and turns life takes us through. You may be in job search mode, or at the peak of your career- both are great times to re-assess where you’re at and how you’ll get to the next step in your career.
Topics covered in the workshop will include:

After this webinar workshop, you'll walk away with an action plan tailored to your career goals, plus strategies for how to implement it. You’ll feel proactive, more confident, and more prepared for that next career conversation or opportunity that comes your way.

In this webinar we will reframe what self-promotion really is—a strategy for helping others while communicating your value—and we will dig deep into tactics and techniques to 10x your self-promotion efforts to massively boost your career and visibility.
