Please join us Thursday 10/22/20 at 5 pm PT, for our Get Hired Now! Career Success Networking Group Call with Coach Ron Nash.
We will have GHN Career Network member Leah Jewell join us to talk about Upskilling and Reskilling this week. See additional info below.
What we will talk about:
LIFELONG LEARNING and the FUTURE OF WORK
Jobs require us to constantly shift and evolve
Employers value someone who’s always learning- it’s a mindset
Think of yourself as a suite of skills vs a particular job
WHAT TO LEARN
High demand skills. Job shifting and this is for the short and long term.
What credentials matter
Unpacking job descriptions- employers are not always clear about skills or pathways- it’s not you, it’s them!
Look for skills/learning at the intersection of passion, job alignment and time
WHERE TO LEARN
Free vs paid
Degree vs discrete skill
Start a business
All learning counts- not every learning is formal
Unpack your personal story
HOW TO DEMONSTRATE WHAT YOU’VE LEARNED
