JVS Job-seekers Virtual Workshop

The Power of Upskilling to Help You Land Your Next Job GUEST SPEAKER

Rachel Serwetz

As a job seeker, your skills must be relevant and up to date with the changes in the job market. One way to do this is by refreshing your skills or acquiring additional skills that can help differentiate you from other applicants vying for the same position.

With so many opportunities to grow, it can be overwhelming to choose your next skill to develop, a course to take, or a project to launch. In this talk, CEO and Career Exploration Coach, Rachel Serwetz, will guide you through how to start by strengthening your clarity on your ideal career path. That way, you can strategically research, compare, and prioritize what learning opportunities would be the most valuable for you to add to your resume and portfolio.

There will be 20 minutes of open networking

with fellow job seekers after the presentation.
