For those of you who receive our newsletters, you'll know that we've spent a good amount of time over the summer preparing for this always-busy period in our region. As people return from summers spent away, the pace ramps up and there's a definite 'new start' vibe; we wanted to put together a programme of events and initiatives that helped everyone get on the right track.
And so, the idea for our monthly Career Clinics came about - a regular interactive session, held in a relaxed atmosphere at a time that we felt would suit most people. With a welcome drink at the end of a long day, our Clinics are hosted by well-known partner institutions that can truly add something to the conversation and bring some insight and education on various topics.
Sunday 10th September saw our very first event kick off at the beautiful BOCA in DIFC with LinkedIn as our partner host. With a packed house, we welcomed our lead Key Skills coach, Archana Bhatia, and Stefanie Fernandez from LinkedIn taking us through both soft and practical approaches to get your job search off the ground, take an alternative route in your career and of course ways to use LInkedIn itself to help you on all points.
The evening was great fun with an excellent group of women in attendance, and we'll be announcing very soon how you can be at our next Career Clinic in October, this time hosted by Leanne Foy from the PRCA, who'll be helping you build your personal brand. Make sure you're signed up with us and keep a watch on our social media for details. Thank you to all who came along and we're already looking forward to the next one.
