CAMAWiSE WiSE UP workshop series 2016-2017
CamAWiSE Workshop Series
After two successful workshop series in 2012/2013 and 2015, our WiSE UP workshops are back. WiSE UP 2016/2017 will focus on career anchors, LinkedIn and mentoring. Those who attended the last WISE UP series told us they valued being part of a group, meeting the same group of people each time, so we hope you will book for two or more of the workshops to get the most out of the opportunity.
October 18th – Career anchors: Identify your strengths & values
Facilitated by Tennie Videler
Put into perspective what is really important to you whether searching or applying for a job, or seeking promotion. A “career anchor” is a combination of perceived areas of competence, motives, and values relating to professional work choices. The Career Anchors workshop is designed to help you identify your anchors and to think about how their values relate to your career choices.
A Career Anchors Self-assessment copy value £10.58 is included for free when you book for this workshop.
November 15th – Getting noticed on LinkedIn
Facilitated by Cathy Sorbara
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.
March 7th -How to get the best from mentoring as a mentor and a mentee
Facilitated by Natacha Wilson
Learn how to get the best from mentoring: as a mentor and mentee. Mentoring is a rewarding experience which allows the sharing of knowledge and skills to help individuals gain confidence, develop ideas, fine tune value propositions, get funding or secure a pilot.
All the Workshops will be held in the Woodlegh Room at Lucy Cavendish College, Cambridge, 8-10pm
Numbers will be strictly limited. The cost for two workshops is £20 for members, £30 for non-members. You may book for just one workshop (Members £12 / non-members £18) –
