Transferable Skills: Your key to a new job!

May 19, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Your guide for building meaningful career plans – even if you change industries!

Communication, Critical Thinking, Teamwork and Creativity are important skills in almost every job. But what is the secret sauce to success?

In this workshop you’ll learn how to implement this powerful formula for identifying your super powers (meaning transferable skills). Everyone is good at something – it is just a matter of asking the right questions, and figuring out your own answers. And then being able to communicate your skills to future employers. We will teach you how to unlock your potential and “sell” yourself with confidence and pride—knowing that you can deliver what you promise – whether on your resume or during an interview.

We will show you how to identify your transferable skills, incorporate them into your resumes and cover letters and craft answers to potential interview questions.
