A Career That Fits: Finding Work you Love

Work that fits your interests and skills can make all the difference to career satisfaction and success.  This workshop offers an opportunity to assess both your interests and skills to help inform and direct your career exploration and planning. You will:

1. Discover how your natural interests can uncover information about your best fit career path options assessed by the Strong Interest Inventory – giving you information about your “Career Personality” to the kinds of work you like to do, your work values, and the type of environments in which you thrive.

2. Assess your transferable skills, and create a preferred skill set; learn how to utilize this information to plan your next steps in building a career path that matches what you do with what you both do best and enjoy most.

3. Learn how to utilize your assessment results to self-market in your career development and job search, including how these can inform the development of a unique value proposition, and a more focused resume.

Participants will receive a personalized tutorial utilizing the results of their assessments, that will describe how to maximize use of the extensive O*Net database in their career planning, including exploring information on careers, accessing current labor market trends, salary information, and career exploration resources.

Skills assessment activities will be done during the workshop; the Strong Interest Assessments will be taken in advance of the workshop and includes an extensive personalized report.

Writing Resumes with Impact!

Most people know that maintaining a current resume is important, yet don’t take the time to do it until they need one. Knowing how to describe your accomplishments is key in telling your story and conveying all you have done on the job. You also will need to know how to come to the top of the “electronic pile” when submitting resumes to companies that use software as part of their hiring process. In this session you will:

  1. Learn how to develop a resume that will grab the reader’s attention.
  2. Reflect your experience and reputation for maximum impact and gain the competitive advantage.
  3. Build a compelling resume with metrics that showcase your accomplishments.
  4. See an actual demonstration of an Applicant Tracking System.
Attend this session to learn how to write a resume that has impact.  The skills you learn will apply to upcoming transitions as well as to the ongoing management of your career.

Attend from the comfort of your home or office. All you need is a computer, access to the internet and a telephone.
