The Art of Self-Marketing for HDR Candidates

How often do you talk about yourself on a professional level? Do you find it hard to know where to start and how to self-promote yourself without making the wrong impression?  Well, you are not alone!

Tune into series of 3 webinars aimed at offering strategies, tools, insights, and advice to help you unlock your potential and get started in developing your own self-promotion campaign for career success.

  1. Tell Your Story – Crafting a compelling pitch for your job search

For many candidates articulating a “why” message highlighting their strengths and skills to potential hiring managers beyond their study can be challenging. However, having a compelling pitch is the building block for all job search messaging such as a networking pitch, a LinkedIn profile, a resume summary, cover letter, an industry introduction email, or a response to the interview question “tell me about yourself”. 

Come along and learn strategies to help you develop a narrative which tells your authentic story, helps you to make meaningful connections and opens doors to future career possibilities.

  1. Personal Brand Matters

In today’s digital age first impressions are made online. They start well before you meet your potential employer and can determine whether your application is progressed to the next stage – simply because of how you present yourself in the online world.

Personal branding may sound like a marketing cliché but, it is the first impression the world has of you and indicates who you are and what you stand for.  Come along and learn how to start developing your personal brand and create the right first impression.

  1. Get LinkedIn

LinkedIn operates the world’s largest professional career networking site on the internet. In 2021 the site officially had 760 million users with 40% of them accessing it in a daily basis. As a result, LinkedIn has become a one stop online tool to access an unlimited supply of job opportunities, employability skill learning, industry forums, online professional networking, and useful career research. This webinar will also refer to academic social networking sites for career development.

Join the session to learn how to make the most of this indispensable tool on your career development journey.
