Kristen Gleason | May 07, 2014 | Video

Have you ever wondered how some training professionals get noticed in the business world? Why does it seem to be so easy for them but not for others? Do you get discouraged because you either don't know how to brand yourself or feel it's too overwhelming or time consuming to do? Branding yourself doesn't have to be a daunting task! It can be an enjoyable and eye-opening experience that will present additional opportunities. During this interactive session the speaker will share how she was able to stand out, along with stories from other training professionals. She will discuss the importance of having a positive attitude, networking, looking for opportunities, and thinking outside the box.

(Like It or Not) You Are Your Portfolio

ATD 2014 Session: WCC1
Greg Williams | May 07, 2014 | Video

Our careers are very important to us. We spend a great deal of time working at our job, thinking about work and how we can get ahead in our careers. Unfortunately, many people don't spend much time on developing and using the career tools (e.g. portfolio) they need to be successful. Whether we like it or not, to employers, our portfolio represents who we are to them. When we apply for a job we don't always have the opportunity for employers to meet us personally. The first impressions that we make on potential employers are based solely on our career tools such as resumes and work samples. Given that, it is critically important that our professional portfolio present us in the best possible light. This hand-on workshop will guide people through exercises and activities that will help participants build and use a winning career portfolio. Participants will create an action plan that will help them integrate ATD's Competency Model in their portfolio, show them how to use their portfolio to get interviews, how to use their portfolio in interviews and how to get promotions and successful performance appraisals. Additionally, the session will show people how to create and electronic portfolio with minimal technical skills.

Everyone should have a resume! In order to gain employment, a resume is required and it is crucial for job-seekers to take a proactive approach to their search. If a resume is requested, the job-seeker should be prepared! You never know when you will have chance meeting with someone who says 'Send me your resume.' If you are not currently seeking a position, you should still have an updated resume. The last thing you want is to throw it together and provide something less than stellar. A resume is a marketing tool. To craft one properly, it requires a strategy, time, research, and an understanding of what is required in this difficult market.
