Dependable Strengths for Alumni & Community
Are you seeking a career change? Been downsized in your current profession? Or, simply interested in exploring how to enhance your current employment situation? The Career Center's Dependable Strengths Workshop is an excellent resource for alumni in any stage of career transition.
You will identify the unique strengths and talents you offer employers and learn how to leverage them to find a satisfying career. This workshop is scheduled several times each year. Dates are listed on the following sign-up page.
Assess your strengths and open up new opportunities. Identify what you enjoy, things you do well and events or experiences in which you take pride.
Co-sponsored by the UW Alumni Association, the Dependable Strengths two day group process is designed for those interested in assessing their skills and combining them to open new windows of opportunities. The focus is a nontraditional job search process. Each participant identifies what they enjoy, things they do well and events or experiences in which they take pride.
Through guided group discussions, participants will:
- Identify good experiences
- Develop a Dependable Strengths Report
- Learn to articulate their worth to an employer
- Learn to make contacts when ever they may want them
- Succeed in interviews
- Work with a support team to increase self-confidence
