Dependable Strengths Workshop for Alums - 9/7 & 9/10

The Career Center at the University of Washington presents:

Dependable Strengths Workshop for
UW Alumni (& Others) - Ramp Up Your Job Search & Networking Skills

September 7 & 10, 2012

Are you struggling with finding a job?  Frustrated with securing that job, but don't know what to do next? Not sure what you're really good at? You're not alone, and help is on the way! In this 2-day workshop, you will gain confidence in your skills, learn important new networking methods and develop a strategy for finding a job and career that really "fits". Using the "Dependable Strengths" articulation process of identifying strengths and talents, participants report greater  employability, self-esteem, productivity and career and life satisfaction. 

Past participants of the Dependable Strengths Workshop report:

I explored my strengths and talents from a different point of view - stepped out of myself and evaluated my strengths in a very honest way to help me find my life work
It completely shifted my focus from "how can I fit into that job" to "how I can highlight my strengths and abilities which will lead to getting the right job for me".
It helped me define and clarify my strengths, increased my self-esteem, and established a network.
This workshop really helps you take a fresh look at what you can do by learning to see and focus on your dependable strengths.
