Join us for a session on how to find and talk to interesting people in ways that open doors for your shift
This Masterclass is for you if you…
- Know that talking to people would help your career change, but don’t know how to start – or where to find them
- Want to learn more about what it’s like ‘on the inside’ of different roles, but keep defaulting to Google (which isn’t helping)
- Worry about sounding naïve or flaky in conversation with people in new industries
- Hate talking about yourself, and struggle to know what to say when a conversation turns to you
- Feel like your CV or resumé doesn’t reflect who you are or what you want, and wish decision-makers could get to know the ‘real you’ first.
You’ll leave with…
- Clarity on how to find interesting people and set up conversations to learn about new careers
- A simple, step by step model for conducting informational interviews
- Scripts, key phrases, and artful questions to uncover helpful information and encourage further connections
- Practical approaches to help you talk about what you’re looking for – even when you’re not yet sure – without feeling fake or inauthentic
- Insights into the way conversations can open doors, create possibilities and lead you to new connections in your shift
