The “Develop your career – leading yourself to success” workshops were well received, with active participation by the enthusiastic students.
The workshops focused on motivating the students to plan their careers, rather than just letting things simply happen, urging the participants to create a level of self-awareness of their own strengths, weaknesses, and motivational drivers (“mission”, “meaning” etc.)
Ms. Bergmann encouraged the students to combine this self-awareness with a structured approach to planning a career.
Following this interaction, the students were given the opportunity to fill out a so-called “career house,” to help them determine how to achieve their future goals.
The strong message transmitted to the eager youths was that if your strengths do not support your “vision” (or your final destination), then, think again. And if your weakness could stand in the way of the final dream job – think again!
