A very happy new year to you and welcome back to work!
Who had conversations over the Christmas break about finding a new job? Or maybe, not quite as dramatically, talked about things you’d like to learn this year, how you’d like to improve certain skills and excel in your current job?
The start of a new year is a great time to take stock, reflect on the achievements of the last year and plan your objectives for the upcoming twelve months. It might also be appraisal season for you, so thinking about these things is a must.
If this sounds like something you want to do, you’ll be interested in Auditing Your KIM Skills Gap - the first joint Connect-ed and NetIKX workshop on Tuesday 27 January, being led by me and my TFPL colleague Jayne Winch.
The workshop is aimed at anyone with skills…… and we all have them! Auditing your KIM Skills Gap will include: • How to identify your skills and their value • What skills are trending in the KIM market place • Marketing your skills • Making an impact.
Included within this session will be refreshers on how to write the all important CV and application form. Making an impact will present practical tips on ways to shine at interview – and will allow plenty of time for questions and lively discussion, helping to facilitate an invaluable environment for learning and development.
It’s being held at the British Dental Association (BDA) on Tuesday 27th January 2015 at 4pm. There will be a small charge of £10 for non-members of NetIKX or Connect-ed. For more information, or to book: directly register via the NetIKX website or contact email@example.com. https://www.tfpl.com/calendar/event/auditing-your-kim-skills-gap--joint-workshop-with-netikx
Continuing professional development is so important for all of us. I'm really looking forward to this workshop and getting people energised about making the most of themselves.
Whatever it brings for you, I hope 2015 is a happy and healthy year.
