On Tuesday, 16th February 2021, the Department of Advancement at Saltus launched a three-part virtual alumni workshop, called the ‘Saltus Alumni Career Webinar’ series.
These Saltus Alumni events are designed to provide guidance to alumni seeking employment, planning for a career change, or looking for strategies to boost their career. Hosted by HR & Recruiting Professional, alum Kijaun Wilkinson ’07, the first instalment focused on the introduction, resume, and cover letter writing.
The next virtual event will be held Tuesday, 23rd February and will be all about job interviews - preparing for, managing, and leaving a positive impression on the interviewer. Mr. Wilkinson will be joined by local Psychotherapist, trainer, and alumni parent Lorrie Peniston who will focus on skills to help leverage a successful interview.
The third and final instalment, held on 2nd March will focus on strategies to utilise social media platforms, general and professional branding as well as techniques to be effective during networking opportunities – both in-person and online, ending with a panel discussion featuring HR & Recruitment Professionals from Bermuda and North America.
Denise McAdoo, Director of Advancement, stated that “the job-search landscape has changed drastically in the last year and Saltus wants to be a resource for our Alumni. Recruiter’s criteria are changing rapidly, and this three-part webinar series is a great opportunity for our Alumni to connect with HR professionals to learn new skills, identify and articulate strengths, and learn networking skills that will last a lifetime.”
Each event stands alone, and registration is open to the entire Saltus community including all Saltus alumni. Sign up today by clicking the links below:
