Thanks to all who came to our ‘Identifying the right job for you’ workshop in Berkhamsted recently. There was a fantastic turn out of high calibre, talented and vibrant professionals!  We met for a few hours, focussing on how and where they could take their next career steps.

One thing that was most striking is that everyone’s needs and desires change with life stage and current circumstances. Around the room we had a wide range of scenarios: those not currently working; people seeking their next opportunity; those working long hours wishing they could work less; those working only a few hours, wishing they could work more; and someone, having reached the panacea of not needing to work anymore, realising that she really wanted to!

It goes to show that your career situation needs constant evaluation and the real question is ‘is it working for you?’ If not, it’s time to take action.

Our next Member workshop for the West Herts, South Bucks and London area is on 3rd May about the World of Social Media in Berkhamsted. Register with our website and contact us if you’d like to come along. Places are limited so get in touch to book your place today. We host a variety of FREE Member workshops like this throughout the year, so keep your eyes here on the blog or look out for emails with more details nearer the time.
