Cultivating your career involves learnable skills. A recent count of Lynda.com courses resulted in well over 50 that directly address career development skills and topics. That’s great, but who has time to explore all of them? Here are a few selections suggested by professionals concerned with the career development of UC Berkeley staff.
Career Development workshops have been scheduled in May and June, and are open for registration. The May-June time frame – following the flush of activity at the end of the semester – can be a good time to take a fresh look at your goals and skills.
Fall 2016 Staff Career Development Workshops are now open for registration! Hold your spot before the holidays!
Continuous learning has been called a critical competency for the 21st century. Keeping skills current helps people to stay relevant in the world of work, and to prepare for appealing future opportunities. Think about this: your skills represent much of what you market in your resume and in job interviews.
When someone gets motivated to find their next career step, it isn’t unusual for them to begin by creating or updating a resume. Taking a little time beforehand to think about their direction can help people highlight their most relevant skills and experiences.
Through the process of self-assessment, an individual can clarify how their preferences and other characteristics relate to the world of work. In models of career development (including ours at UC Berkeley), self-assessment is usually shown as an early step or phase.
The 2015 NOW Conference was a big success for the 3rd year in a row! With an attendance of 438, Berkeley staff had a wonderful opportunity to learn from expert presenters, get individual career coaching, and network with their peers.
