Alumni Careers Clinic

12 March

Minds alive

Alumni Career Centre

Welcome to the Alumni Careers Clinic

Join us for a morning of proactive career management at our Alumni Careers Clinic in partnership with Reunion for New Alumni (R4NA) being held on Saturday 12 March 2022 at our London campus. This in-person event* is exclusively for alumni who graduated in years 2018-2021.

Please see the full agenda below, register for your place and buy your ticket now as spaces are limited.

Great Careers don't just happen...

The world of work has changed dramatically, and arguably for the better. While it may not always feel like it, when you look forward to the career ahead of you it is filled with a myriad of opportunities.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do you think you'll be in the same role in 5 years' time?
  • Do you think your industry will look the same in 5 years' time?
  • Do you think your career criteria (the things you value most in your career like autonomy, or rewards) will be the same in 5 years' time?

The answer to each of these questions is probably No, No, and Maybe, but probably not...

Good career management is a proactive sport. The most successful individuals don't just let their career happen to them, they take the lead, hone their career skills and revisit their goals, values and motivations, plans and tactics. As the old saying goes, change is the only constant. It is more important than ever that you are the driver of your own career.

Join us for a morning of proactive career management at R4NA 2022, when we will be coming together, in person, for a series of tactical career management workshops designed to help you stay 'match fit' for whatever career opportunities you seek out or come your way.

Choose between three streams of activity depending on your career stage:

  • • Early Career Pivots
  • • Mid- Career Acceleration
  • • Executive Career Transitions

We'll be joined by experienced Careers Coaches from the Alumni Career Centre and the wider LBS Career Centre who will lead these interactive workshop-based sessions, designed to lay the foundations for you to take a proactive approach to managing your career.

In addition, we will welcome a panel of coaches and alumni to kick-start the day sharing their career pivot and acceleration tips and we'll close the morning with a Career Keynote Speaker, Sarah Ellis, co-author of 'You Coach You - how to overcome challenges and take control of your career' who will speak about how there is no such thing as a straight line to success and that the best place to start is by coaching yourself. No one can solve your problems better than you can, and learning to coach yourself will accelerate your self-awareness and help you take control of your career.

We're also pleased to be able to offer all those in attendance on the day a free copy of the book to take away afterwards.
