The Ultimate Job Application and Career Workshop
Our CV and LinkedIn profiles are the gateways to amazing career opportunities, yet many of us really struggle to ‘sell’ ourselves both on online and offline. As a result, we often fail to effectively communicate our true capabilities or the value we can bring to an organisation, which can cost us amazing career opportunities.
If you are considering making a career move or just want to be in the right spot should an opportunity arise, then this hands-on Job Application and Career Workshop will help you get ready.
In this jam-packed day, Johnathan Maltby will teach you how to define your Professional Identity and then use it to create a professional CV, LinkedIn profile and Elevator Pitch. You will then get the opportunity to actually create these tools on the day and receive individual support as you do it.
Our all-day workshop will be split into 4 parts:
PART 1: DEFINING YOUR PROFESSIONAL IDENTITY.
Your Professional Identity is the foundation on which you build your Personal Brand. By defining this, you are developing your core branding message which will then be used in your Job Seeking Toolkit – CV, LinkedIn and Elevator Pitch.
When you understand your Professional Identity, you become an authority on yourself, leading to greater professional self-awareness and enabling you to effectively ‘sell’ yourself in a clear and confident manner.

PART 4: DESIGNING YOUR ELEVATOR PITCH
In this section, you’ll learn how to confidently answer the “so, tell me about yourself” question by creating a brief, engaging and persuasive 25-30 second elevator pitch that gets people excited and keen to know more.
You will learn how to structure your elevator pitch, effectively communicating who you are, what you do and your personal unique selling points. You’ll also discover the best practices for preparing your narrative and practising your delivery.
