It’s hard to believe that we are now in September, the children will soon be back at school and the countdown to Christmas is beginning!  

Workshops :-
If you are thinking seriously about changing your current job or returning to work after a break you may be interested in attending either or both of the following workshops which will be held at Pirton Village Hall.  All our workshops are free to our members, but numbers are limited so please email lucinda@ten2two.org as soon as possible to reserve your place.

Getting to Know You / CV hints and tips – Weds 16th September between 10am and 1pm
This is an opportunity for you to have a brief one-to-one session with either Carol-Anne or myself at which you can discuss your current situation, career aspirations and opportunities.  The workshop includes an interactive session at .which we will discuss how to create an effective cv.  We divide the workshop into 2 sessions, 10am – 12noon and 11am – 1pm.  Please state which session you would like to attend.
 

Improve Your Chances of Interview Success (Get Back in Your Comfort Zone with Style!) – Weds 7th October – 9.30am – 12noon
Applying for a job can be a daunting prospect, particularly if it has been a while since you looked for new role.  Once the excitement that you’ve secured an interview has worn off, self-doubt can start to creep in.  Whether it’s overcoming nerves or not being certain you’re wearing the right outfit, these distractions can undermine your confidence.  Regardless of your skills and experience you are giving yourself a mountain to climb at interview.
 

At Ten2Two we understand this and want to help so we have teamed up with Karen Kelsey, an NLP Life and Performance Coach of Kelsey Coaching and style guru, Carol Hanson of Want Her Outfit for an interactive workshop.  Covering topics from “Brand You” to Body Language we will offer you plenty of tips to improve your chances of securing the job you want.  www.kelsey-coaching.co.uk    www.wantheroutfit.com.
