This workshop is perfect for newcomers and local residents who want to develop their networking skills. If you don’t already have a job, or just want to make new friends in Victoria, networking is a critical skill, yet many people have a strong aversion to the concept of networking. They may think it means being “salesy” or ‘fake” and yet it doesn’t have to be that way. I’ll help you to show up at networking events authentically and in a way that others will want to connect with you. If you’re looking for work in Victoria, networking is essential. You’ve probably heard of the unpublished job market, where up to 50% of the job opportunities in a city are never advertised – in Victoria it’s more like 80-90%. Most positions are filled by word of mouth referrals and you’ll want to network to uncover unpublished opportunities that could be perfect for you. This two and a half hour workshop will give you tools and confidence to become a more confident networker, even if you’ve never done it before. If you’re a newcomer, you may also find you make some good connections with local residents and you’ll discover some of the many opportunities that exist in Victoria to practice your networking skills.
You’ll also have the opportunity to book a complimentary one-on-one 15 minute coaching/support call to refine your 30 second introduction and get personalized advice to support you in achieving your networking goals.
