Webinar: Building resilience in the job search and early career

Building resilience in the job search and early career

  • Date— 27th June, 2018
  • Location— Online Webinar
  • Time— 12PM Singapore Time

Recent research suggests that the ability to bounce back from setbacks and persist with long term goals is among the most – if not the most – important predictor of career success.

The South East Asian Association of Graduate Employers (SEAAGE), warmly invites you to our first global webinar, featuring Colette Vogel, Senior Director of Employer and MBA Engagement at the Foster School of Business, University of Washington on Wednesday 27 June 2018.

Colette will explain how recent research on grit and resilience can help us, and the students and young professionals we deal with, to bounce back from rejection.

Registrations are still open and filling up fast. With less than a week to go, we encourage you to please book your spot early!


The webinar will cover:

  • How to talk to candidates and students about failures
  • A 4-step model for bouncing back from career setbacks
  • Three ways to reframe your view of negative events
  • When, and how, to use goal setting
  • Why we need to connect (and not hide) during tough times

This is an interactive webinar and everyone who attends will have a chance to put questions to Colette in real-time, live!
