Looking after your career: an interactive workshop

Have you ever seen an advert for the perfect job and then doubted if you could apply because your CV didn’t quite match up? Or wondered how you could get over the mid-career hump that can sometimes seem impossible to traverse? This workshop will look at what you can do to put yourself in charge of your own career. It will cover areas such as carrying out a skills audit, exploring career opportunities, and going about goal-setting and what you can do every day to give yourself a better chance of moving on and/or up the career ladder.

Tamsin Russell, Museums Association
