You’re Hired! Career Transitions Workshops

Want to brush up on your job-hunting skills? KDL’s Kentwood branch can help with a series of Career Transitions Workshops on Thursday evenings this winter! 

Developing Your Personal Brand, scheduled for 5:30–7:30 p.m. on Jan. 5 and Feb. 2, is aimed at helping you identify — and thus develop and market — your innate talents and describe your key functional, technical and behavioral competencies to set the foundation for effective verbal and written communications.

Communicating Your Brand, to be held from 5:30–7:30 p.m. on Jan. 12 and Feb. 9, includes information about elevator pitches (getting your message across in the time it takes to ride an elevator a few floors), as well as résumés and online profiles, with emphasis on aligning your message with your professional value in the marketplace.

Networking, to be held from 5:30–7:30 p.m. on Jan. 16 and Feb. 16, is aimed at helping participants explore strategies and techniques in building and nurturing effective relationships with contacts.

At Behavioral Interviewing, presented from 5:30–7:30 p.m. on Jan. 26 and Feb. 23, participants will learn how to create a positive and lasting impression with potential employers, essential techniques of effective interviewing in today’s job market and how to effectively negotiate terms of employment.

The Career Transitions Workshop series is presented in partnership with Career Transitions Center West Michigan.

Registration is required, and participants can attend one or all events.
