Level up Your Skills: Join These Workshops in Manila

by - 6:31 PM

Looking for ways to boost your career or get the job you want?

In the Philippines, a research from Jobstreet.com in 2015 named communication, trainability, and competence as the top three functional skills being sought by employers. A survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers in the US almost has a similar result ranking leadership, communication, and ability to work with a team as the most valuable skills in the workplace.

When I became a freelancer in the beginning of 2016, I made sure that I was and will always be well-equipped when it comes to my writing jobs. Occasionally, I have spoken to fellow moms who want to venture into freelancing to be able to stay with their babies. Aside from the usual "find what you're good at" advice, I always tell them to never stop learning. It's not easy just because we work at home. There are hundreds of potential employees out there whose CVs are too good. It best to stay on top of the game by continuously equipping yourself with knowledge and new skills.

You need to continuously invest in developing yourself to cope with the demands of your job. Aside from reading articles or videos from the internet, an effective way to learn is by attending workshops where you can interact with the trainer and meet fellow participants face-to- face. 

Go Up Events, an all-around event logistic provider, aims to support your career goals by organizing various workshops in Manila this 2017.
