Speaking in public, visiting the dentist, and updating a resume/CV leaves most people with anxiety and dread. Career confidence and clarity come from understanding our personal values and priorities, knowing what hiring managers look for, and conveying our hard-won expertise to a potential employer.
This talk guides attendees through proven frameworks and resources for undertaking a needs-gap analysis for career planning, mastering professional language for senior and leadership for resume/CVs, and commanding higher salaries with effective negotiation techniques.
Moving on to new jobs every 3-4 years results in greater challenges, new opportunities for advancement, and significantly higher lifetime incomes.
Attendees will understand: how personal values can alter their career trajectory for good, how to undertake a needs-gap analysis for career advancement, write clear and concise career stories demonstrating process/feature ownership and expertise befitting senior roles, how to better understand hiring manager needs, and how to navigate salary negotiations.
This is for game professionals with at least four years of experience in their specific field.
