Marketing Yourself: Transferable Skills [Event Ref. No. TG4/TRANSF]
Information professionals in academic environments are highly qualified, very professional and have a unique skill set. As the world of academia continues to be impacted by Government cuts, this course provides this community with the chance to explore how these skills might transfer into alternative environments.
Erica Sosna is the Author of Your Life Plan and the Director of The Life Project. Her passion is helping people to uncover and market their strengths, enabling them to have careers that suit their aspirations, lifestyle choices and interests.
This course provides a great opportunity to think more about the life skills we have learnt and to consider how to use them to further career prospects and choices, whether we remain in our current organisation or move to a new organisation or a different sector.
Aimed at staff from all areas and grades of library work, the course offers a new outlook for individuals to take forward when considering their professional aspirations.
This course includes a confidential CV/application review by Erica. Just email your CV/application along to her after booking your place and the session will include private feedback on how you could make it more compelling.
By the end of the day participants will have:
1. Identified a career goal
2. Understood what engagement at work looks and feels like
3. Used lateral thinking to review their skills and passions
4. Identified the transferable skills that they have acquired throughout their career
5. Produced a market friendly ‘positioning statement’
6. Developed a personal project plan to move forward
7. Have reviewed and refined your CV/application to improve ‘sellability’
