Career choice a sharp reflection

MANAGING your career in today’s employment market is the focus of a breakfast seminar series, Hold a Mirror to your Career, which begins at the WA Club next month.

Organised by Envision Growth and Change Processes director Susan Leeming, each of the four seminars will provide information and tools for people to excel in their career.

“The changing world of work means that people can’t think of themselves as loyal to their employer,” Ms Leeming told WA Business News.

“You now need to think about your financial stability and managing your own career.”

She said the first seminar, Winning that Perfect Job or Promotion, would provide key principles for people wanting to get ahead, or for those faced with redundancy.

“Lots of very competent people imagine their competency will get them to where they want to go, but that is not the case. The most deserving don’t necessarily get the job,” Ms Leeming said.

“A large part of getting ahead involves networking, your image within the organisation, and being astute to how you project yourself.”

She said the other seminars would concentrate on career management tools, such as how to perform well in psychological testing, negotiating your salary, career reinvention strategies, and balancing work with the rest of your life.

The first breakfast seminar will be held at The WA Club on May 7 at 7.30am. Individual seminars are $45 for members and $50 for non-members, which includes a fully cooked breakfast.

A package for those wanting to attend all four seminars is available.
