WIE(VR) – Women in Engineering (Vancouver Region) invites you to a workshop on “Marketing and Sales to Advance your Career”, Thursday, April 7th, 2011
Marketing and Sales to Advance your Career
The economic downturn dramatically changed the employment environment. Seemingly overnight, the multiple job offers that employment-seekers had become accustomed to evaporated. For employees, the corporate ladder became steeper and harder to climb. More than ever, this means that you have to do more and work harder to get noticed, find the right job opportunity, and advance in your career. To be successful, you not only have to be good at what you do, but you also have to be good at marketing and selling yourself.
Marketing and sales strategies help companies to develop unique value propositions and brands, and leverage their brands to build successful businesses. On a personal level, you can apply the same strategies to build and advance your career.
This session describes marketing and sales and how they can be applied on a personal level. We’ll discuss how you can use marketing and sales strategies to develop your unique personal value proposition and brand, and how you can leverage your personal brand and value proposition to advance your career.
