About The Event

Our careers are like books, each with a beginning, filled with chapters of plots leading to a desired ending. As authors of our own lives, the onus of writing our career story has always been in our hands. However, most of us do not know how to take control, develop and shape our careers. Changes in the surrounding environment, which include the workplace and our own personal life circumstances, often lead us to consider possible plots for our ongoing career storylines. So how can you take charge and develop your own career story?

In this programme, you will be guided to learn about yourself as the story author, review your written career story and develop a narrative to shape the plot of your future career story. The programme is spilt into 2x 4 hours online Zoom sessions. It includes the use of diagnostic profiling reports, and group discussions around concepts and personal experiences and will include pre- and post- reflective and summative assignments to support learning and application. You will also receive a 1 hour one-to-one career clarification with a Career Coach after the programme. Please see the outline below for more details
