Audencia's Career Centre continues its partnership with Sensible Media in the UK to bring a series of webinars to alumni and students.
More than 50% of professionals experience career derailment at some point: being fired, demoted, or told we are unpromotable. In this webinar Carter Cast (Professor of Entrepreneurship at Kellogg School of Management) will share his research on why derailment happens, how to avoid it, and how to recover if it does. A standard tenet of career advice is to “know your strengths”. Much less focus is put on helping us diagnose our weaknesses. Very often it is these lingering blind spots and skill gaps that trip us up when we are confronted by a new work environment or a new challenge to surmount.
Starting on 18 November, the first webinar of the season will focus on avoiding and recovering from career derailment.
Audencia is delighted to offer free tickets for alumni and students for this live webinar from 19:30 to 20:30 (Paris time) on Wednesday 18 November.
