Are you looking to change careers but have no idea where to start?

Have you taken a career break and are looking for advice and support on how to re-enter the workforce?

Have you relocated because of your significant other and now find yourself unemployed?

We have a special event just for. On November 4th 2017, at the British Antarctic Survey’s Aurora Center, we will be hosting ‘Relaunch Your Career’.

We aim to give you the tools, confidence and support system to take that first step. A full day of training for women with a background in Science, Technology, IT, Engineering, Maths, and Medicine, it will include expert speakers, workshops and plenty of networking opportunities.

We invite all women, regardless of your career stage, to take advantage of this incredible event.

The morning will be devoted to talks from experts about identifying your skills, job flexibility, confidence, negotiation and more and the opportunity to ask questions and interact with the speakers.

Following a lunch break, we will have workshops to give you hands-on experience on creating an online presence, crafting your CV, finding your career anchors and more.

Finally, we have organised an inspirational woman in STEM career panel so you can hear from women who were in your situation and how they coped. Learn from their successes and failures and feel supported.

LinkedIn has over 332 million users, 17 million in the UK alone.

94% of recruiters use LinkedIn to vet candidates. Keeping your LinkedIn profile up-to-date makes you 18 times more likely to be found in searches and by recruiters.

Bottom line: if your profile is not up to scratch, you are missing out on capitalizing on the most powerful online networking tool in the world.

Come join CamAWiSE as we walk you through the three most important components of a LinkedIn profile and how to successfully optimize your profile to increase visibility.

Whether you are changing careers or simply looking to build an online presence, this workshop is not to be missed.

Relaunch your Career: planned happenstance, personal brand and values, inspiring stories and so much more…

This sell-out event was attended by wise women from Nottingham, London, Dublin and just down the road – all keen to relaunch their careers.  Many intend to return to work after a career break, others want to change career direction, most planned to do both.  After a long wait, our time had finally arrived.

First up Katie Perry who isn’t a pop star but has had a much more interesting career path.  By embracing planned happenstance, she’s gradually transformed from physics PhD student to CEO for the Daphne Jackson Trust which assists professionals returning to all sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics.  In her current role, she’s streamlined the fellowship application process so it’s not as long and the number of fellowships have increased – does this have anything to do with Katie doing karate?

Next up Tennie Videler.  Always entertaining but I didn’t think I’d learn anything as I knew my values, or so I thought.  After a few questions on what we’d enjoyed most and least in our lives, Tennie described 7 key values (not including lifestyle “which isn’t a value – you just have to make your life fit”).  Small changes in emphasis compared to the careers workbook I’d previously completed but wow, what a difference! My main career driver became crystal clear!

‘If there’s one thing you take away from today, it’s to create a LinkedIn profile’.  Read more

A full day of high-intensity training for women with a background in Science, Technology, IT, Engineering, Maths and Medicine, it will enable you to identify your skills, gain confidence and be inspired to take the leap.

Come and hear Katie Perry, CEO of the Daphne Jackson Trust, speak on the subject of returning to work and changing career path. There will be workshops on career anchors, using your networks, finding jobs, and honing your CV. We’ll also have a panel discussion featuring successful returners and transitioners, to show you what can be achieved.
