Personal branding & networking
Achieving ambitions, obtaining projects and assignments, finding work, performing well and keeping it fun. This requires you to know people, find them and be found, but most of all to be noticed. Would you like to be noticed by people from your field, in your work environment or on the labour market? Would you like to learn how to profile yourself successfully and to be able to network easily? In this training you learn how to network more consciously. You start by stating your added value and ambition. You then learn how to communicate clearly and effectively about yourself in an interview, during your work and on social media.
