Foothold webinar: Take control of your career, Part #2 - Planning your career

Thursday 26 January 2023
12:00 UK time

Whether you are looking for a job, seeking a career change or intending to climb the ladder within your existing employer, you’ll need a plan.

The old saying that “failing to plan is planning to fail” rings true, yet many engineering professionals let their careers happen to them, rather than taking control and proactively driving their careers forwards.

This exclusive webinar will provide you with several strategies to take control of your career, prepare yourself for promotion, or hit the job market.

  • What is a Career Autobiography and why ALL career-minded professionals need one
  • How to identify and map your skills needed for the next step of your career
  • How to develop (and stick to) an effective career plan
  • The marketing techniques used by highly successful job seekers
  • How your career plan feeds into your CV/resume and the interview room
  • How to exploit your knowledge to generate on-the-side revenue streams
