Course Description

Are you struggling with your career at the moment? Finding the right job could be a daunting task eating up your entire time.

After spending 18 years working as a Human Resources professional internationally, I realised that most people are not equipped to manage their career pro-actively. At the same time generous programmes (outplacement and career transition support) are not necessarily offered anymore. Who wants to be enrolled in a 9-month career transition programme any longer? Therefore my approach is to help the international, agile, globe trotter, ambitious professional to get results via a 4-step method.

These 4 steps should not require months to put in place for you as long as you are willing to use the framework and apply it to your situation.

1. The first step is to brand yourself, find the one thing you are good at, your unique selling proposition and be clear about it.

2. Once you know what value you bring to the world, you need to package it in the right way so that you attract the right companies or clients if you set up your own business.

3. You need to understand market dynamics, how to find opportunities and connect with a supporting network.

4. Once you secure a job offer, this is not the end but a stepping stone to continue branding your image to get promoted. This programme will help you address politics, difficult management and survival skills to win the game.
