Facebook Round Up: networking wingman, confident public speaking, making a change at any age

Facebook Round-Up: Career inspiration, networking wingman, confident public speaking in any situation and making a change at any age

This week I found some inspiring articles around shifting into a new career that inspires you. First, it’s finding out what that is, then it’s making the decision and of course the many steps in between. What new skills do you need? I find honing in on your personal presentation and public speaking skills is a necessity. Being confident when talking about yourself, your message, your mission and goals in any situation. If you haven’t honed that skill yet, think about asking a friend to be your networking buddy or wingman where "I talk about you and you talk about me". Or think about taking a public speaking class. Here’s a round up of what you may have missed on Kori Burkholder: Career Transition Coach Facebook page, plus a special discount to an upcoming VitaminR public speaking and PR course.

This week:
