How to find a career you love by Sandra Schwarzer
Thu 4 May 2017, 18:30 – 20:00 BST
Through her own experience of choosing the “wrong” first job, and her subsequent journey to a fulfilled career, Sandra Schwarzer, an expert in Human Resources, became interested in how people change careers – whether early on or at a later stage.
Thinking about your career can at times be daunting and overwhelming – navigating your own interests versus external pressures, understanding what drives meaning and success, demystifying career planning and being able to challenge the conventional way of thinking early on will help you think about your own aspirations.
Join Sandra and the WHS Careers Team on 4 May 2017 for this interactive presentation on how to think about your career.
Sandra works in the Board Practice at Russell Reynolds, a leading global executive search firm. Prior to this Sandra was the global human resources director with Open Society Foundations (OSF); a George Soros’ private human rights philanthropy organization that operates in over 100 countries.
Before joining OSF, Sandra worked at INSEAD in France and Singapore, where, as director of MBA/EMBA and Alumni Career Services, she advised businesses and coached over 2,000 individuals through their career planning. Sandra received her Executive Master’s in Coaching and Consulting for Change from INSEAD, focusing her thesis on the psychological barriers career changers need to overcome. She also holds an M.A. in International Business from Institut d'Etudes Politiques Paris (Sciences Po) and her B.A. (Hons) in French Studies from the University of London in Paris.
She is passionate about helping others to think through their career aspirations and mentors young men and women around the world.
