You have skills and you have expertise, whether you are just beginning your career or have years of experience already behind you. You may have expected to have a great selection of jobs and career paths open up to you, but in today’s world of cut-backs, competition, government jobs disappearing and businesses facing endless economic pressures, it is easy to believe that your options are limited.
This does not have to be true. Taking this course will help you adapt and become a better fit in your current job, reduce your stress, and improve your ability to find the work that complements your interests, skills and aspirations.
There are people who work in their dream jobs, but they probably used a completely different approach from the traditional one to find those jobs; a career development method that works 86% of the time. If you want to find your dream job, you need to start by doing extensive work on yourself before you look for changes in your career. You are not just your job title; you’re a person who has these skills, these experiences, and these interests. You’ll learn how to approach your current employer or possible potential employer as the resource you are; the asset they need to reach their goals.
Finding your dream job is a productive, self-assessment, research, and planning process that will enable you to have more control over your career. The goal is power – personal power – to increase your job satisfaction, make maximum use of your skills, and be a fully engaged resource for your employer.
This one-day workshop includes lecture, demonstrations, a variety of practice exercises and time for reflection. You will be able to:
- Take charge of your career and re-energize yourself.
