Resume & Cover Letter Writing

This workshop will provide the participants with the fundamental of writing impactful resume and cover letter. The workshop will start with “Understanding Self”. We will then help participants link this self knowledge to the specific jobs, companies and industries they are seeking for (i.e. the concept of relevancy) and provide them with the necessary skills to highlight their passion, strengths and talents so as to achieve “Stickability” with the prospective employers. “Stickability” is the concept of how impactful resume and cover letter can differentiate and make participants stand out from the rest.

Cultural Quotient (CQ)

In an interconnected globalised world where people work in different places and with people from different countries, understanding of cultural differences is critical to success. Cultural Intelligence or Cultural Quotient (CQ) is about understanding the impact of an individual's cultural background on their behaviour in business and social setting. Participants will be taught strategies to leverage on cognitive (head), physical (body) and motivational (emotion) means to understand and empathize the different behaviour driven by culture to bring about effective outcomes in their business and social life.

Participants will be given a simple guide on how they could effectively build rapport using NLP technique such as Matching and Mirroring, Leading and Pacing etc.
