Welcome to Week 2

Welcome to the second week of Essential Skills for Your Career Development.

Last week, you explored what direction you want your career to go in by identifying your ideal job. You learned how to bring together your interests and skills to create a vision for your career. You also put together a career timeline with actionable steps. Now you need to focus on how to grow your career.

This week, you’ll explore how to identify key individuals, organisations and platforms to help grow your network. You will develop the necessary communications skills to engage these key leads. At the end of the week you will evaluate the impact of your career development strategy and adapt it as necessary.

Remember, if you come across any terms you are not familiar with, you can return to the Glossary.

Good luck for the week ahead.
