Networking & Social Selling
The key concept in this module is Personal and Professional Branding and Networking. while on your international job search, you can't afford to be a ghost or on incognito, this is a luxury afforded to Rockstars and billionaires. You want to build an online presence that says, “Hey, I’m here", "look how awesome I am" and "You need some of this in your organisation” ! this module will show you how to do just that as well as create connections that will whisper your name in the right places and help you get noticed.
We already know that the 1st world needs your skills, talents and abilities however
before you get to personally introduce yourself, your application documents speak on your behalf. When creating these application documents, attention is paid to the content, layout, and design.
The content highlights the relevant previous experience, tasks executed, and all skills that fit the vacancy. A clean layout and smart content structure will ensure a good, professional first impression.
in this module, we show you how.
The hiring process typically includes several (video) calls with different stakeholders from the potential employer. During these calls, special attention should be paid to clear effective communication and a confident, convincing appearance. But how exactly does one achieve this? It is important to adequately prepare to come across as competent and connect with the interviewer(s).
this module pays particular attention to how you present yourself and the do's and don't of these interviews.
