Online Workshops

  • Is your organisation about to go through a restructure?
  • Would you like to support your employees through job loss?
  • Do you need a cost effective solution that still provides your team with all the right tools to enter the job market?

At Careers by Design we offer a number of online workshops designed to support your team with their ongoing career management and development. Our topics and interactive sessions allow your employees to deal with and manage the change, put together professional documentation for the job market, and understand how to navigate their way through this market to their next opportunity. Zoom and Teams are available for online workshops.

We can create an online package that will best suit the needs of you and your employees. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.

Our topics include:

Career Development

Creating a career that is meaningful and fulfilling is a goal that many of us strive towards and at times struggle with. Understanding the core career components that influence our decisions making processes, in addition to being able to conceptualise what our career futures look like, can be a powerful process that helps us achieve our goals and vision.

By attending an online career workshop, employees will be able to gain clarity to develop their unique career vision and identify ways to grow within their current roles and the wider industry. Tools and techniques learnt from their attendance will ensure they exercise ownership over the design and creation of their own career path, with clear and measurable goal setting strategies. This is an opportunity to reflect and indulge in career planning activities with workshops that cover:

  • Understanding career values
  • Assessing motivational drivers
  • Exploring career preferences
  • Demonstrating key skills and talents
  • Creating a long term career path
  • Developing key milestones

Workshops can be developed to fit in with your employees busy schedules – ideally across 2 - 4 hours.


When organisations go through change and restructures employees can feel uncertain about their future and how best to prepare for the job search process. 

By attending one of our online outplacement workshops, participants come away with greater clarity regarding the market, tools to create their own CV and cover letter, and strategies to tackle job search, social media and interview challenges. We are able to tailor these workshops to best meet the needs of the attendees across all levels of an organisation. The core components of the programme include:

  • Understanding the job market
  • Strategies for job search
  • Managing change
  • Mastering networking
  • Utilising LinkedIn
  • Creating professional CV and cover letter documents
  • Preparing for interviews

New Zealand has one of the highest rates of LinkedIn use in the world and we are increasingly seeing this used in a multitude of ways including networking, brand promotion, and professional development. It is a great way to help your employees create a professional online presence, connect with other professionals in the industry, and keep up to date with the latest developments and trends in their profession.

Our online LinkedIn workshops provide participants with all the tools they need to set-up, maintain and utilise the platform to promote a professional brand. We cover:

  • Optimising profiles
  • Utilising the key functions of LinkedIn
  • Developing an understanding of how to boost profile search results
  • Increasing awareness of how to utilise networking functions
  • Developing knowledge of the privacy settings
  • Learning the ways to develop a professional network
