Marketing Yourself: Transferable Skills [Event Ref. No. TG4/MARK]


3:00 pm

Event Type

These times of change and uncertainty for many offer a good opportunity to think more about the life skills we have learnt and to consider how to use them to further career prospects and choices.

Erica Sosna Director of ‘The Life Project’, a life skills education provider, has developed this bespoke course to enable library staff to identify talents and explore their career opportunities in the light of these skills and talents.

Aimed at staff from all areas and grades of library work, the course offers a new outlook for individuals to take forward when considering their professional aspirations.


By the end of the day participants will:

• Have used lateral thinking to review their skills
• Explored how their interests and hobbies demonstrate a varied skill set
• Worked with each other to explore new opportunities to use these skills and
• Have developed a personal plan of action to move forward.
