Meet Heidi: Building Meaningful Value in a Virtual World!

On Seeking Mentorship: Be the CEO of your own Future Career Pathway

Meet Heidi Brandley, Director of Workforce Development, Manpower AlbertaIn this Episode, Heidi focuses on mentoring and on how protégés need to be the CEO of their own futures in this new virtual and remote of everything world!  Without the in-person networking events and meetings with potential employers, the onus is now on  Jobseekers and Career Navigators to self navigate to find the best match for potential mentors and employers – people who potentially align with their career pathway goals.

When COVID hit, there was no other option other than the virtual online tools for keeping up with your networks and personal relationships.  These tools now have become a lifeline for remote working and remote learning – and as well a mainstay for communicating with people and building meaningful relationships and connections.

So how do you build meaningful relationships now with mentors and future employers?
