Benefits to gain by attending career events. And other exciting announcements.

We don't know the case with others, but for us, it's difficult to imagine more stressful situations than to be stuck in a career rut. It may be because we're writers of career (of course, we don't share our views with everyone), but well, this is our blog. We're free to say whatever we want as much as you're free to criticise us.

So, are you having difficulties with your job hunting or career building? Whether you're a job hunter or a working professional, this blog is a good place to look for career resources to use. But you may be asking... how can we answer the career queries of both career builders and job seekers in just one post?

Though we're not into assumptions, we're eying our experience on career conversations as the key to this task. Many months of engaging in discourse has us realise that for most job hunters, competition causes the problem. For career professionals, it's when they don't know how to go further in their careers anymore due to many things.

By offering the latest seminars by Career Events and LearningDB.com, it's like we're addressing both scenarios in one go. You can say that this is only coincidence doing us a favor, but the goals of both these learning arms of JobsDB.com Singapore have long been sworn and that fact can't be discounted. They've long been offering career seminars and training opportunities for those who need it: it's a matter of whether people are willing to participate in the events or not. The key to brace the competition is to make oneself desirable than most -- one thing that attending learning events can add to your credentials. For career building, any rut can be solved by attending career events -- they're enough to re-awaken anyone's motivation.

There are many things for you to gain by attending career events. Now, are we good? Ready for our offerings?

Career Events' November offering is designed for job hunters. Impress Your Prospective Employers with Your Resume will equip you the necessary knowledge and skills on resume writing to embark on your path of career success. But of course, this shouldn't discourage working professionals to also join the session. Use the additional knowledge to carve your way to a higher position. The date to mark is Nov 20. More details at www.jobsdb.com.sg/StaticContent/SG/CareerEvents/events/Impress-your-prospective-employers-with-your-resume.htm.

Something you should do ASAP: pass www.learningdb.com.sg/default.htm#November to your boss. Our reason for this shameless promotion? Many seminars are scheduled to have their first sessions this Nov. In other words, a number of new things to look forward to from LearningDB.com will be presenting themselves for the first time this month. Of course, there will be the staples e.g. Effective Technical Writing Skills (Nov 12), Strategic Pricing & Costing (Nov 15-16), and Polished Presentation Skills (Nov 16). But you really should look forward to attending Personal Excellence in the Workplace (Nov 26) and The Millionaire Mind Intensive (Nov 26-28).
