    *Webinar* Identifying What Makes You Happiest at Work

    September 17th, 2019

    Hosted with Ladies Get Paid

    Do What You Love is a catchy phrase, but how do you actually go about achieving it? Research shows we are happiest when our values (what is important to us) and our skills (what we're good at doing) overlap. This workshop will help you identify both your values and your core skills set, so you can make career decisions driven by what will fulfill you.

    Identifying your values will help you to:

    • Identify the kinds of activities, people and environments that you most desire in your work.
    • Determine which work environments best fit your personal and professional needs and the skills you would like to develop there.
    • Focus on career objectives that are important to both you and potential employers.

    Identifying your skills will help you to:

    • Create a sharper career focus by comparing your existing skills with those required in various areas of employment.
    • Understand which skills need further development in order to successfully compete in the job market.
    • Write a resume that advertises your skills.
    • Articulate in an interview the skills that match those required by potential employers.
