Career Directions© Planning and Development Webinar Series

Webinar 1: Marketing Yourself


This previously recorded webinar focuses on the “how to’s” of marketing yourself, providing you with information on how to articulate who you are, what you want, what you can do and persuading others that what you have to offer meets the demands and challenges of the ever changing environment.

Webinar 2:  Scanning your Environment

October 4, 2016 – 2:00-3:00pm (MST)


What are the current realities? Future Trends? Scan your environment and learn what is going on in your career field and the world in which you live and work. This provides you with the information you need to recognize possible opportunities for your future career as an LPN.

Webinar 3:  Completing your Self-Assessment

November 8, 2016 – 11:00am-12:00pm (MST)

Self-assessment is part of the career planning and development process. It is important to assess your past experiences and accomplishments, your values, knowledge, skills, strengths, limitations, likes, dislikes, and interests. Recognize the attributes that make you who you are and identify what you have to offer.

Webinar 4:  Creating your Career Vision

January 10, 2017 – 10:00am-11:00pm (MST)


Have you ever considered the following questions: What do I really want to do? What is my ideal vision for my work? Vision is another word for a dream, an image of potentiality. Those who have a career vision talk in terms of what is possible. Creating your vision for your career as an LPN is a pivotal point upon which the next two phases of the model, planning and marketing, depend.

Webinar 5:  Developing your Strategic Career Plan

February 7, 2017 – 1:00-2:00pm (MST)


Every career vision requires goals to accomplish or your vision will remain forever a dream. A goal is the purpose or objective towards which an endeavour is directed. What are your short and long-term career goals? You can have more than one; multiple goals will broaden your options. Developing your strategic career plan consists of the identification of goals, action steps, resources, timelines and evaluation of success. A realistic plan will move you towards achieving your career vision.
