The Ten2Two North Herts & Beds team were delighted to host two events in Luton in January. Our ever popular ‘Getting to Know You’ event came first and, as always, was heavily oversubscribed. A personal meeting with a member of the Ten2Two team is much sought after as we are able to discuss a member’s career goals and aspirations, and review and improve their CV. We met many lovely members that morning at The Hilton Garden Inn Hotel and have helped them kick start their job search for 2016. Following on from that we held our first ‘Return to Work’ event at The Hat Factory in Luton town centre. What a fantastic morning we had and we were so delighted to be joined by a very enthusiastic group of Ten2Two members. We covered topics including the ‘Work Readiness Wheel,’ which helps members to focus on the Economic, Emotional and Practical considerations of returning to work after a career break, refreshing your CV, and the different types of interviews you may experience. It was a busy couple of hours but we felt it was a great success and we hope to roll it out over all our areas during 2016. Keep a lookout for details in future newsletters!!
