Speaking To The Skills I Have

Speaking to the Skills I Have is a 6-hour workshop (2, 3 hours sessions) for individuals wanting to sharpen their talking points for resumes, networking opportunities and job Interviews.

The goal is for you to be able to tell your story in a way that connects with employers.

In this workshop you will work through a series of reflection activities that focus on identifying and give value to your communicating skills, abilities, and attributes in a way that employers would recognize.
