Event Details

Looking for a new job is a daunting prospect. For many, reinventing or tweaking an existing role may be a smarter career strategy. This webinar with Professor Monique Valcour examines how professionals can re-design their job to make it more fulfilling, more aligned to personal career goals, and more valuable to their employer.

Employees who feel trapped in an unfulfilling role are often in a catch-22.  They recoil from the uncertainty of a job hunt, but at the same time don’t want to struggle at an unfulfilling job.  Faced with this dilemma, many people become disengaged, perform below their potential and lose the ability to contemplate a change, let alone design and implement one.

Recent workplace research shows that job crafting - the process of making incremental changes to redesign an existing job rather than leaving it - can make you more adaptable and engaged and increase your job security and employability at the same time.

How to go about job redesign
The webinar is designed to help you take practical steps to redesign your role and keep renewing yourself and your skills.  In particular we will cover:

  • The kind of tasks and projects that offer a pathway
  • How to research opportunities within and outside your organisation
  • How to persuade decision-makers and gatekeepers
  • When to propose a formal change of job description and when to work informally

Improving career self-management
As well as examining career crafting strategies, the webinar will examine changes each of us can make to develop a career self-management mindset.  IWe will review:

  • The effect of keeping a weekly career review diary
  • The importance of spending time with the right colleagues
  • Ways to open a dialogue with your manager and/or firm to help you move towards your career goals
  • Day-to-day good practices for career self-management
