Career Barrier & Strengths

Figuring out what you want to do with your career can be daunting. You’ve done your research, you’ve been to career fairs, you’ve looked at job boards, and you’ve listened to advice from your nearest and dearest. But you are no closer to making a decision. The nagging question keeps coming back to you: How do I know which career is right for me? This workshop will provide you with perspectives, techniques, tools, and ideas that help you move forward with the career journey that is right for you. It's not about creating beautiful CVs or preparing to ace the interview. Nor is it about exploring the job market or looking at different professions.

It’s about acknowledging not only your skill set but also your personality when it comes to finding the right job for you. Then, it’s about taking actionable steps to develop your chosen career path.
