About the workshop

You will engage in professional identity formation and development during this workshop. Re-examine your core strengths and strategically deconstruct your knowledge, expertise and career experiences with the use of professional narratives and interactive activities. 

Professional identity stems from our social identity, thus group discussion and feedback will help reflect your authentic professional presence and review new avenues for exploring your opportunities in the Swiss job market. Walk away feeling confident in promoting your career interests with a solid sense of who you are and what you offer to potential employers.

By letting go of our preconceptions of our professional "self," limited by former titles and roles, we open our mental space for the present situation. Part of adapting to the Swiss business market is taking part in this exploration. This event helps those who want to explore this transition in a structured and supportive environment to empower the next step in their career.
