About the webinar

Are you considering a career change in 2019?

Whether you are looking to transition into global development from another sector, move from a field position to HQ, or fancy working in a new or emerging discipline such as social impact, you need to be able to translate your skills.

Understanding how to reframe your profile and experience in a way that resonates with different audiences could help you achieve job search success in the new year. This involves tailoring the language you use and focusing on results to demonstrate what you could bring to a new role.

By attending this event, you will learn

  • How to identify roles which best match your profile, interests and ambitions
  • How to recognize what transferable skills you already possess
  • Tips for tailoring your approach and talking about your experience to different audiences
We'll also leave plenty of time to answer your questions at the end of the presentation. We invite you to share them during the event or in advance by submitting to Kate at webinars@devex.com.

And both of these, if one would tell the truth, were foreordained unto the holy place, where greatest Peter’s follower hath his seat. While on this quest, for which thou giv’st him praise, he heard the things which of his victory the causes were, and of the Papal Robe. The Chosen Vessel went there afterward, to bring thence confirmation in the faith, through which one enters on salvation’s path. But why should I go there, or who concedes it? I ’m not Aeneas, nor yet Paul am I; me worthy of this, nor I nor others deem. If, therefore, I consent to come, I fear lest foolish be my coming; thou art wise, and canst much better judge than I can talk.”
