Nowadays you need a little bit more to get ahead than the experience you have obtained through your employment or the qualifications you studied so hard for at School or University. In a world where competition is high and opportunities are scarce, we all need to do a little more than our day jobs to get noticed and obtain the recognition we deserve. You may well have a myriad of skills to offer, but if no one else knows they are there, opportunities to demonstrate your true capability will rarely come your way.
Raising awareness of your skills through Profile building is probably one of the most powerful tools in your career armoury, however, you have to know what tools and techniques to build it, protect it and use it for success. There is also an element of fear to overcome in relation to shouting about your own success or achievements.
If you are interested in building your profile and finding out more, WeAreTheCity.Com would like to invite you to their “Power of Profile” event at the re-knowned Central Working club in Bloomsbury, London. This session is for 25 people only as the idea is to have an engaging Q&A where everyone gets the chance to participate and discuss their own challenges.
Throughout the session you will hear from WeAreTheCity’s founder about her own career journey from Analyst to Chief Operating Officer. She will also share with you what she has learnt about the importance of profile and the tools & techniques she has used to raise her own profile both inside and outside her Corporate environment. We will talk about Pro’s and Con’s of social media and hear an abundance of ideas and tips you can use to grow your own profile and brand. The evening will start and end with the opportunity to network with other WeAreTheCity members over tea and nibbles.
