Over the last few months, the COVID-19 pandemic has, and will no doubt continue to have a significant impact in terms of how we all continue to work.
As the world slowly begins to adapt and open up again, we are faced with new challenges. For those returning to the office, this may mean anxiety, integrating back into a team, and new work procedures ; those continuing to work from home may face managing work and family; and those looking for a career change or new role, there will be video interviews and new job procedures.
Here are WeAreTheCity, we want to offer our support to try and help you navigate through these new challenges. That’s why we’ve dedicated the entire month of October to celebrate all things career related. We’ve got a whole host of themed features, opinion pieces, resources, advice articles and much more.
We have teamed up with some of the UK’s leading experts to bring you essential tips, advice and ideas to help you returning to work and continuing your career, search and secure new roles, work from home successfully and much more.
WeAreVirtual is also back with a number of FREE career-related webinars, designed to support your ongoing development through tips and tangible actions.
Below is where we will be focusing our efforts over the coming month. If you feel you are able to support any of these initiatives, please do get in touch via [email protected]
We are increasing our editorial content on WeAreTheCity and WeAreTechWomen tenfold. We have engaged with a series of new bloggers and writers to bring inspirational articles packed full of tips and tricks to challenge your thinking and keep you both inspired and motivated.
We are also updating our calendar of events with virtual events and webinars daily. You can visit both the WeAreTheCity calendar here and the WeAreTechWomen calendar here. Please bookmark these links.
