Young Professional Workshop / Webinar

- How to do better next time.
We offer this multi session workshop / webinar over two days. Each session is up to 2 hours (3-4 hours in total for the two sessions). These are interactive sessions, with questions from the floor helping to drive the discussion, rather than a ‘sit and listen to what I tell you’ type workshop.
Psychometric Test With Feedback Session
There is an on-line test, which will help us to understand your working preferences, and help us to give you some guidance as to some career options that will best suit you. This is a test which you do remotely, on-line. There is then a follow up feedback session, which is a one-to-one remote video call, to explain the output from the test. (approx. 1hr). The results need qualified interpretation, to extract your working preferences, and translate these into meaningful advice as regards job type, size of organisation, sectors and target organisations.
Follow-Up One To One Video Guidance
Should you wish to have specific and individual guidance, on any of the areas covered in the workshop, or help with preparation for an interview, then these are available as one to one coaching sessions. These would typically last 1-2 hrs.
